Alzheimer’s disease is the commonest cause of dementia. This course will update learners on how Alzheimer’s disease is diagnosed and managed. The emphasis is on the GP’s role in prescribing and dealing with difficult symptoms such as loss of appetite, poor sleep, agitation and aggression. The module will also cover how to support carers and work constructively with the memory service.
An educational grant was received from Roche for the production of the course. Editorial and content decisions were made solely by the RCGP.
