Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a condition in which individuals demonstrate focal or multifocal impairment with minimal impairment of instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) that does not cross the threshold for dementia diagnosis. It can be the first cognitive expression Alzheimer's disease (AD) or secondary to other disease processes that can cause cognitive deficits. Early diagnosis and intervention can help reduce the burden of AD; however, there are many challenges in diagnosing MCI, including difficulty differentiating it from normal aging, comorbidities offering "alternative diagnoses,", fear, ageism, and lack of awareness by the patient/family.
This CME Outfitters podcast focuses on integrating cognitive testing into annual wellness visits for adults in order to identify cognitive impairment early to initiate referral to a specialist, and on integrating digital cognitive assessments into clinical workflow and remotely to differentiate normal aging from preclinical cognitive decline.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Integrate digital cognitive testing tools into clinical workflow to aid in the diagnosis of MCI and dementia.
Supported by an educational grant from BrainCheck.
Primary care physicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, and nurse practitioners
