MODULE 4

DRIVING AND DEMENTIA; considerations for primary care practitioners

A diagnosis of dementia doesn’t automatically translate into the inability to drive. Consensus guidelines recommend that older adults with moderate to severe dementia not drive. Older adults with mild dementia are at higher risk for crashes.

MODULE 5

CAPACITY AND COMPETENCY IN DEMENTIA CARE

Progressive dementias, like Alzheimer Disease, ultimately interfere with decision making abilities. This program addresses the need for assessment of capacity to make a will, to marry, to drive, to consent to treatment, to consent to admission to a care facility and other issues that arise in patients with dementias.

MODULE 6

TEAM BASED CARE

Cognitive decline, such as forgetting conversations or missing appointments, could be early signs of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Modern practice involves multiple care providers such as nurses, primary care practitioners and specialists. This module provides insights on how those who become involved in Alzheimer’s need to collaborate to deliver optimal care to this patient population.
