CEU Course Description

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a major public health problem that many health care providers will encounter in their practice. As providers, it is important to recognize the early signs of the disease as well as safety concerns associated with progression of the disease. This course reviews two articles published by the National Institute on Aging. The first course covers changes to the brain during healthy aging, as well as what happens to the brain in AD. Cutting-edge research in diagnosis and treatments are reviewed, and tips for improving support for families and caregivers are presented. The second article provides tools to identify potential problems in the home and offers solutions to help prevent accidents. It also offers possible solutions for challenges presented by special occasions, natural disasters, and driving. This course is based on articles by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health.
