This section provides guidance and tools for conducting a cognitive assessment during a time-limited office visit. Detecting possible cognitive impairment is the first step in determining whether or not a patient needs further evaluation.
If cognitive impairment is suspected, a full dementia evaluation is warranted to identify causes for decline or determine a specific diagnosis.
The Alzheimer's Association St. Louis Chapter is pleased to partner with Primaris to educate health care providers about early identification of Alzheimer’s. The three-part webinar series is presented by international leaders in geriatrics and dementia and covers new screening tools, physician reimbursement and information about the Medicare Wellness Visit.
