C181 - Preventive Neurology: How Neurologists Can Improve Outcomes That Matter to Patients

Event Time: Thursday April 26, 2018 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): Joel Salinas MD
Description: Age-related neurologic diseases, such as stroke and dementia, are commonly encountered in neurology practice. Faculty will provide a review of established risk and protective factors as well as an update regarding evidence-based organizational, social, and behavioral interventions that can modify these factors and potentially have favorable impact on patient's quality of life, as well as long-term patient-centered disease outcomes, especially in chronic neurologic conditions where no therapeutic interventions exist. This course will feature practical tools for risk modification and novel recommendations for organizational and behavioral interventions at the individual and population level.
Completion Message: Participants will become familiar with current evidence-based recommendations for assessment of modifiable risk factors for age-related neurologic disease and established and proposed mechanisms by which these factors influence disease risk, independent functioning, and patient-centered outcomes such as quality of life; learn implementation strategies for managing risk factors at the individual level; understand recommendations and strategies for managing risk factors at the community or population level, including health policy implications and financial accountability; and identify research gaps and future directions.
