Needs Statement

Over the last fifteen years, emerging data on pre-dementia forms of Alzheimer’s disease, including preclinical/asymptomatic AD and mild cognitive impairment (MCI), have taken center stage in the medical literature and related media exposure. Healthcare providers need to understand these concepts, the new NIA-AA diagnostic criteria, and how to apply this criteria to distinguish changes that are pathologic from those that represent normal healthy aging.

Target Audience

Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers, Nursing Home Administrators, Home Health Providers, and other health care professionals

Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, you will be able to:
  • Describe the diagnostic criteria for pre-clinical Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment.
  • Identify the different biomarker screening tests for the detection of pre-clinical Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment.
  • Explain the cognitive continuum of degenerative diseases that cause dementia.
  • Distinguish between the clinical profiles of pre-clinical Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment.
