Aging and the Spectrum of Cognitive Changes: Assessment and Decision-Making

Instructor: James M. Ellison, MD, MPH
Aging is associated with a spectrum of cognitive changes ranging from normative mild alterations to clinically significant changes to debilitating impairments. Behavioral symptoms, too, are common and these can resemble non-cognitive mental health disorders. In this presentation, Dr. Ellison will review these cognitive syndromes, discuss assessment, and review decision-making and management issues relevant to the care of persons living with mild cognitive impairment and early dementia.
