This lecture, offered by the McGill University Dementia Education Program in collaboration with Altfest Personal Wealth Management, is aimed at family physicians, geriatricians, neurologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers and occupational therapists who would like to gain a deeper understanding of neurocognitive disorders. 

Sign up to learn how to: 

  • Recognize the symptoms and signs of dementia through the stages of neuro-cognitive decline. 
  • Identify non-pharmacological and pharmacological approaches to manage symptoms of dementia. 
  • Recognize the role of informal caregivers in the management of dementia and the ripple effect on their health and wellbeing.
  • Identify best practices for informal care-givers to manage challenging behaviors, ensure the safety of their family members and access support services. 

Dr. José Morais and Mrs. Claire Webster are two of the senior authors of the World Alzheimer Reports for 2021, Journey through the diagnosis of dementia, and 2022, Life after diagnosis: Navigating treatment, care and support. They will share highlights from the reports, including research and best practices on post-diagnostic management and support following a diagnosis of a neurogenerative disorder.
