The course discusses the pathology and types of dementias such as: Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia with Lewy body, frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and vascular dementia. Completion of this seminar provides clinicians with an in-depth review of assessment tools and techniques for early identification, latest research and early detection of disease associated with dementia. Clinicians will review and discuss current literature associated with cognitive, behavioral and psychiatric symptoms such as aggression, agitation, psychosis, depression in order to develop and implement best clinical practices and evidence-based approaches to manage challenging behaviors.
