  • Overview

    New data and emerging science have significantly advanced our understanding of the pathophysiology of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early-onset Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The FDA has recently approved new disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) that slow the clinical course of MCI caused by AD. This curriculum helps clinicians identify the subtle signs and symptoms of MCI in AD. The program also helps clinicians recognize why and how racial and ethnic differences and disparities affect DMT acceptance, patient outcomes, and disease onset and progression. Faculty discuss the emerging data surrounding the novel pathways and mechanisms that drive MCI in AD and outline evidence-based treatment strategies as well as how to incorporate the new DMTs into clinical practice.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including Neurologists, Primary Care Clinicians (MD, DO, NP, PA), Nurses, and Pharmacists, involved in the management of patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) in Early-Stage Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Utilize clinically relevant tools to assess the subtle signs and symptoms of MCI to facilitate an earlier MCI diagnosis
    • Tailor communication strategies to each community of patients to overcome implicit bias and health disparities and to achieve optimal health outcomes and health equity
    • Provide clinicians with new and emerging data related to the pathophysiology of MCI in AD
    • Increase clinician awareness of the safety and efficacy of emerging DMT therapeutics used to manage MCI during the early stages of AD
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and Total CME, LLC. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
