Rapidly advancing biomarker research is adding much-needed clarity to the differential diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), particularly in early disease, but there are delays in the detection and diagnosis of AD. To combat these delays and allow patients access to early interventions that may slow disease progression, it is imperative that health care professionals involved in AD/dementia care are aware of advances in AD diagnostics and are able to translate these advances in the real-world practice setting.
In this CME Outfitters Snack, expert faculty will discuss biomarker research findings presented at the Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CTAD) conference, review the identification and measurement of AD pathophysiology, examine a framework for evidencing biomarker profiles of AD, provide updates on prognostic performance and interpretation of biomarkers, and conduct a case-based discussion of clinical impacts and applications.
Interpret biomarker-based investigations to identify patients with AD pathology in clinical and research settings.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Lilly.
Dementia specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists, neurology and psychiatry nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician associates (PAs), and other clinicians caring for patients with AD in the United States and globally (with the exception of UK-based clinicians)
