This CME activity is designed to improve knowledge, awareness, competencies and decision-making patterns relative to the diagnosis and management of Alzheimer’s disease. The curriculum will direct learners to the most current criteria and guidelines from the Alzheimer’s Association (AA), and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) criteria and guidelines. Learners will discuss available and emerging treatments, and gain awareness of what is developing for the future of Alzheimer’s disease care from current clinical trials and literature. The case-based learning format is designed to improve performance in diagnosis and testing, as well as raise clinicians’ awareness of the latest technologies available to accomplish these tasks.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- More confidently apply the new 2011 recommendations and guidelines, associated with the paradigm shift in diagnostic criteria, in order to improve patient outcomes
- Better evaluate the place of emergent biomarkers/imaging as a critical adjunct to earlier identification of AD, based on the new 2011 diagnostic criteria
- Incorporate into their clinical practice the changing treatment doctrine for AD, especially (though not exclusively) as newer classes of disease-modifying drug agents emerge from clinical trials of AD
