New Free CME on Alzheimer's Risk, Detection, and Management

Discussing memory concerns with your patients can be difficult.  Alzheimer's and other dementias are complex, and patients often have a lot of questions and concerns.



To help you prepare for these visits, the Alzheimer's Association® presents Challenging Conversations About Dementia.  In this free course, you'll receive information to confidently approach the detection, diagnostic and care-planning process for your patients with cognitive impairment and dementia.

For more information and to complete this course, go to  Other tools on the website include the Cognitive Impairment Toolkit.
