This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 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 course, Dementia, and Diversity in Primary Care: South Asian American Populations, will provide information on assessing and caring for Dementia patients, their families, and caregivers in South Asian American Populations.
The initial course in the series, Dementia and Diversity in Primary Care: A Primer - Guidelines, Ethnic Differences, and Assessment, should be taken prior to other courses in the series as it addresses the diagnosis and treatment of Dementia, while this course addresses best practices, cultural information, and appropriate assessment tools for South Asian American populations.
Conference Objectives are:
• Select culturally appropriate dementia assessment tools for South Asian American patients.
• Utilize strategies to communicate effectively about dementia care with the families of patients with dementia from South Asian American backgrounds.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
The target audience for this medical event is for physicians in primary care, family practice, internal medicine and psychiatry specialties and nurses and social workers who work with older people
