The World Health Organization reported in April that dementia (Alzheimer’s is the most common type) is a worldwide public health crisis, and no nation is prepared. There have been significant developments in research, and results differ with commonly held former beliefs. This broadcast will provide participants with a working knowledge of key facts regarding the burden of Alzheimer’s Disease; an overview of the new National Action Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease; and the evidence-base for early detection and caregiver supports.
After watching this broadcast participants will be able to:
- Describe the public health burden of dementia today
- Identify tools made available through the National Plan
- Explain key evidence-based strategies to address Alzheimer's Disease
We are excited to announce the pilot of a new companion guide for the Public Health Live program and other online training opportunities. The guide will provide guidance, discussion points, and suggested activities for those looking to enhance their learning experience with our web-based programs. Please click here to print the guide.
The guide includes a feedback form and we look forward to receiving your comments or suggestions for improving this guide.
