Deciphering the Disease-Modifying Treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease

The emergence and availability of disease-modifying therapies for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) make it critically important to diagnose the disease before irreversible neurological damage accumulates. This educational tool provides the NP with practical guidance and information about cognitive evaluation in older adults, patient counseling, nonpharmacologic therapies and pharmacotherapies. Helpful resources are provided for the NP to continue their learning about the diagnosis and management of AD.
