It is estimated that two-thirds of persons in the community with dementia are undiagnosed and untreated, a fact that has significant implications for future health resource utilization in view of our aging population. Better identification and management at a primary-care level is essential. Based on the successful accredited Memory Clinic Training Program developed by The Centre for Family Medicine and the Ontario College of Family Physicians, this case-based interactive session provides the busy family physician with pearls on the diagnosis and management of patients with MCI and Dementia in ambulatory care.
After active engagement in this program, participants will be better able to:
– List features that allow the clinical differentiation of normal aging, MCI and the various types of dementia, and explain common office-based cognitive tests and investigations that can assist in the diagnosis
– Review basic initiation and monitoring of medications used in the management of patients with dementia
– Differentiate patients who can safely be diagnosed and managed by the family physician from those requiring a referral to a specialist
FEE: $400 plus HST Please note that on-site registration will not be permitted. CREDITS This program meets the accreditation criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and is accredited for 4.0 CFPC Mainpro-C Credits.
