Program Description

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) continues to be a global health crisis. Progress has been made in our understanding of the science of AD; however, there remains no currently effective treatment to prevent the disease or delay its onset.

The pathophysiological process of AD begins many years before clinically obvious symptoms appear. In addition, the concept of a pre-symptomatic or preclinical stage of AD is gaining acceptance in the medical community. Discussion of risk factors and careful assessments of individuals 60 years and older can improve recognition and help direct treatment approaches.

In this CMEOutfitters Snack, expert faculty will discuss cutting-edge data that can be incorporated to meet the demands of managing complex patients in everyday clinical practice.

Intended Audience

Physicians, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals managing patients with Alzheimer’s disease

Educational Objectives

At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the role and clinical utility of biomarkers and imaging for current and future use in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease
  • Describe the emerging science and therapies that will build tomorrow's treatments for AD
