Alzheimer’s Disease, Part 2: Living with Alzheimer’s Disease is organized by Nurse.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held from Dec 13, 2017 - Dec 13, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is intended for an interprofessional audience, including nurses, audiologists, dietitians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, physicians, social workers, and speech-language pathologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.80 Contact Hours.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, as many as 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including an estimated 200,000 under the age of 65; by 2050, up to 16 million will have the disease. Earlier recognition and formal support as well as better general health of our older population means that more Americans are living longer with AD, and increasing numbers of families and communities are involved in the lives of people with AD. The financial strain on families and our societal structures, mainly healthcare and government, is part of living with AD. Early diagnosis has been shown to reduce overall costs due to earlier intervention, better assessment and planning of care, and the extension of time living in the community rather than in more expensive care settings. This CE module provides an overview of how individual healthcare providers and the healthcare team can support the people living with AD.
The goal of this CE program is to provide nurses, physicians, dietitians, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, physical and occupational therapists, and social workers with information on how to support people living with Alzheimer’s disease, both individually and as an interprofessional team.
After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
• Identify at least three healthcare-related disciplines with effective approaches to supporting people with AD
• Discuss how interprofessional collaboration in care approaches can enhance outcomes
• Describe two evidence-based interventions for people living with AD
• Discuss three quality-of-life elements and innovative management approaches to living with AD
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available
