Needs Statement

In 2011, the NIH led a consensus panel on identification of strategies for reducing risk for the future development of degenerative dementias such as Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). While extensive literature is available from a wealth of published studies, sufficient data warranting recommendations for risk reduction was lacking. Care providers need to understand this risk data to better educate their patients and caregivers on safe strategies that may prove beneficial pending further studies and accumulation of evidence. The issues include a perceived lack of available strategies for reducing the risk of developing a future dementia. The media and paid advertisements our patients and their caregiver are viewing are often misleading. This is perhaps the most pressing issue for family members who are at increased risk for the development of dementia.

Target Audience

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

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, you will be able to:
  • Describe different risks associated with the future development of a degenerative dementia.
  • Compare potential efficacy of such strategies.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the risk/benefit ratio of employing such preventative strategies given our current understanding of risk prevention in dementia.
