Screening for dementia in primary care
Holsinger T, Williams JW

Educational Needs Addressed Cognitive impairment is a common problem in primary care clinics and is associated with increased use of health services and increased mortality. Often patients with cognitive impairment go unrecognized until their deficits are severe, at which time interventions may be less successful. As dementia is a common concern of patients, causes significant disability and an increased death rate, and is an added burden to the health care system, physicians caring for older adults need an effective and feasible assessment approach for older adults with memory complaints. Screening and earlier treatment could reduce the burden of suffering of this syndrome. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the epidemiology of dementia 2. State the risk factors for dementia 3. Understand the rationale for dementia screening 4. Describe the instruments used for dementia screening and their characteristics
