JCOM Abstract


J Clin Outcomes Manage 
2005 Jan;12(1):49-60
Diagnosis and treatment of alzheimer's disease
Edwards-Lee T, Henderson VW

Educational Needs Addressed: Alzheimerís disease (AD), the most prevalent dementia, is a neurodegenerative disorder that leads to progressive cognitive impairment and is often accompanied by behavioral symptoms. An estimated 4.5 million persons in the United States have AD. Most cases of AD are diagnosed and managed by community-based physicians, often by the primary care provider. As evidence-based therapeutic options expand, it is increasingly important for physicians to achieve an accurate diagnosis, to identify comorbid disorders and other potentially contributing factors, and to offer individualized treatments based on patientsí specific diagnoses, cognitive and behavioral symptoms, and psychosocial needs. Educational Objectives 1. Apply criteria for dementia in the patient with memory problems; 2. Distinguish AD from other common disorders that cause dementia; 3. Recognize both behavioral and cognitive impairments in the patient with dementia; 4. Describe management options for mild to moderate AD; 5. Describe management options for moderate to severe AD
