Target Audience: This activity is intended to meet the educational needs of primary care clinicians including internists, family physicians, radiologists, neurologists, nurse practitioners and pharmacist who are seeking additional education in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment 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 practices to bridge the gap between patient care and care recommendation, ensuring healthcare professionals are not only aware of current practice but are utilizing them in patient care settings. This will be accomplished by increasing competence and knowledge on treatment protocols in the dementia disease space through a targeted case-based education method to educate the clinical field on how to incorporate new treatment options into their care management plans.
