Tau Primer 2024 CME, CNE

Activity Available: April 2024 – April 2026

Education Activity Description: Research experts in the field discuss various topics related to Tau Biomarkers; including a clinical overview, drug development, risk and environmental factors, genetics, molecular and cell biology.

Jointly provided by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Alzheimer’s Association

Estimated time to complete activity: Approximately 60 minutes per module (1.00 Credits)

Learning Objectives:

Discuss tau-based biology, biomarkers, therapeutics and phenotypes
Determine how to attract talent and funding to the study of tauopathies, particularly among early career researchers
Increase interdisciplinary alignment and collaboration around challenges in tau research

Understand the current state of biomarkers for tau biomarkers derived from neuroimaging and from the analysis of bodily fluids and their roles in the detection, diagnosis and prognosis of tau-associated neurodegenerative disorders

Target Audience:  This activity is intended to meet the educational needs of primary care clinicians including internists, family physicians, radiologists, neurologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who are seeking additional education in the assessment, diagnosis and ongoing health care of patients with cognitive impairment and dementia.

Statement of Purpose: A practice gap is the difference between what healthcare professionals should or could be doing and what they are currently doing. Using current evidence-based care recommendations to bridge the gap between patient care and clinical guidelines, ensuring healthcare professionals are not only aware of continues updates in the guidelines but are utilizing them in patient care settings. This will be accomplished by increasing awareness and knowledge of (1) tau-based biology, biomarkers, therapies and phenotypes (2) discuss the current state of biomarkers for tau derived from neuroimaging and (3) develop strategies to increase interdisciplinary alignment in tau research.
