—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease is expected to triple in the next 30 years. This will dramatically increase the likelihood that mental health clinicians will be tasked with caring for the social and emotional needs of patients and families experiencing cognitive decline.  In 2017 the Lancet Commissions declared dementia to be the “greatest global challenge for health and social care in the 21st century” (Livingston et al., 2017, p. 1).  This of course was before the 2020-2021 global pandemic, which may have outpaced this threat but has also served to exacerbate it through the compounding effects of social isolation, grief, stress physical inactivity and potential neurocognitive insults related to COVID-19.

Dr. Sherrie All, a clinical neuro-rehabilitation psychologist will guide you through a better understanding of the manifestations and prognosis of each type of dementia.  She will guide you on a tour of the human brain to better understand the physical and cognitive breakdowns that happen in the different types of dementias and how that affects symptoms and care.

Dr. All will provide an overview of two cognitive screening assessments that you can use in your daily practice to identify cognitive decline in your clients.  You will also learn the latest information on other tools used in dementia diagnosis including current advances and recommendations for brain imaging, biomarkers and genetic risk profiling.

Build your toolbox of intervention skills with strategies to improve communication when caring for people living with dementia as well as best practices for addressing challenging behaviors.  Learn the efficacy of medications and prevention strategies as well as an overview of ethical considerations including end of life, abuse and multicultural considerations.

Learning Objectives

  1. Determine how the manifestations of each type of dementia impacts identification and prognosis.
  2. Describe 2 assessment tools that can be employed to screen for possible cognitive difficulty.
  3. Utilize non-verbal communication skills that can help professionals identify meanings behind gestures when working with patients who have dementia.
  4. Develop techniques to manage challenging behaviors.
  5. Investigate how the latest medications, preventative treatments, and advances in early detection could impact care of people with dementia.
  6. Analyze end of life issues and elder abuse and correlate how the ethics of dying impact the clinician, client, and their family.
