CME : 1.5
Dementia and Diversity in Primary Care: A Primer - Guidelines, Ethnic Differences, and Assessment is organized by Stanford Medicine and will be held from Nov 25, 2015 - Nov 20, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is designed for physicians in primary care, family practice, internal medicine and psychiatry specialties and nurses and social workers who work with older people. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.50 CME Credits.
Although dementia is the most common diagnosis in older adulthood it is under-recognized in primary care. This gap in recognition is even greater for patients, their caregivers and families who belong to various ethnic and racial minority populations. As U.S. residents are aging, and becoming more racially and ethnically diverse, physicians and other healthcare providers will increasingly need to tailor their care to specific populations. This series of continuing education activities is designed to help healthcare providers recognize dementia, select culturally appropriate assessment tools, and communicate effectively about dementia care in ethnically and racially diverse populations. This initial course, Dementia and Diversity in Primary Care: A Primer - Guidelines, Ethnic Differences, and Assessment, will introduce primary care physicians and members of their care teams to the “ethnogeriatric imperative” and its impact on dementia. Future courses will provide information on assessing and caring for diverse racial and ethnic groups.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
• Compare the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease in racial and ethnic minorities to the general population
• Identify the barriers faced by ethnic/racial minorities in obtaining diagnosis and services after onset of dementia
• Identify dementia in older adults from diverse race/ethnic backgrounds
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
