Pharmacologic Interventions for Dementia Syndromes

Pharmacologic Interventions for Dementia Syndromes will explore intervention with an emphasis on using the published literature to choose pharmacological interventions for cognitive and behavioral manifestations of dementia, including the roles (i.e., indications and benefits), cautions (i.e., risks, side-effects, warnings) and potential alternatives to using cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine, antipsychotics, and antidepressants in ADRD.  Finally, given the recent FDA approval of 3 amyloid imaging agents, this program will also help participants better understand how biomarkers are changing practices with regard to clinical research and management of ADRD.
