Target Audience

Neurologists, internists, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss recent developments in the diagnosis of AD such as the role of beta-amyloid and tau biomarkers
  2. Implement shared decision making with the patient and caregiver to develop individualized approach to diagnosis and treatment to improve the quality of life for patients with AD

Activity Description

In this module of a Four-Part Expert Interview Series, Dr. Barry W. Rovner, along with Dr. Richard S. Isaacson, course chair, will provide learners with an update regarding beta-amyloid and tau biomarkers and their role in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology and progression. Recent guidelines and trial data relating to beta-amyloid and tau will be reviewed, and clinical relevance debated. Drs. Rovner and Isaacson will also discuss the diagnostic criteria for Alzheimer’s disease and intervention techniques for the various stages of disease. Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will be better equipped with best practices for managing beta amyloid and tau levels in practice to provide optimal care for patients with AD.

Statement of Educational Need

Health care team members need to understand the most recent clinical trial data regarding the treatment of AD patients, including beta-amyloid and tau biomarkers.
