Screening for Cognitive Impairment
Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD
At the same time the US population is aging at an unprecedented rate, the number of individuals with cognitive impairment is increasing rapidly. While cognitive health has been identified as a priority area for aging and public health agencies, the opportunity to evaluate symptoms of cognitive impairment is overlooked and the diagnosis of cognitive impairment is often missed. Although a definitive diagnosis of cognitive impairment necessitates a thorough evaluation of several cognitive domains and other patient factors, screening for cognitive impairment can be relatively quick and easy. This webinar will define cognitive impairment and several related terms, and discuss the importance and process of screening for cognitive impairment.
