Evidence-Based Treatment and Monitoring Strategies for Dementia-Related Psychosis
Antipsychotics can be used in the short-term to manage dementia-related psychosis, but serious adverse effects can outweigh benefits. Novel antipsychotics or other agents may offer superior efficacy and safety. Explore the evidence in this CME activity.

Differentiating and Treating Alzheimer’s Disease
Drs Anderson and Malone cover the types of dementia and their indicators, ways to approach care for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild dementia, and treatment options available or in the pipeline for disease intervention. Early diagnosis and intervention of MCI and mild dementia can slow disease progression and optimize outcomes for both patients and caregivers.

Mild Cognitive Impairment Due to Alzheimer Disease
Drs Anderson and Malone discuss the burden of, signs and symptoms of, diagnostic tools and criteria for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild/early dementia and the benefits of early diagnosis. Early diagnosis and intervention of MCI and mild dementia can slow disease progression and optimize outcomes for both patients and caregivers.
