Overview

Assessment of memory changes with age - the NIA just released a detailed list of instruments to detect cognitive impairment in older adults. It is a list of 100 published instruments with references, cost, time involved, etc. to assess Alzheimer’s Disease and cognitive impairment in older adults. We will highlight some of the assessment tools and describe relevancy in our own practice or in literature reviews. We will navigate the website in the webinar.
