Assessment of Dementia Through the Use of Evidence-Based Measures

Assessment of Dementia Through the Use of Evidence-Based Measures focuses upon assessment and differential diagnosis.  Emphasis will be on explaining how to use screening tools and to differentiate various types of dementia.  Participants will be asked to think about how to incorporate these tools into mental status examination and community practice.  The information will be useful for other health care providers as they interact with primary care and help persons who have ADRD or their families navigate the health system.
