Description

Cognitive complaints are common among older people and have many causes, including the normal changes of ageing. A detailed history and cognitive screening are essential for diagnosis, and screening for medical and psychiatric conditions may identify a treatable cause. All older patients presenting with forgetfulness may benefit from neuroprotective advice. Specialist referral should be considered in complex cases or when dementia is suspected.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Recognise possible causes of memory problems
2. Assess patients presenting with possible cognitive decline
3. Advise patients on health and lifestyle measures to prevent or delay cognitive decline
4. Recommend strategies to help patients with memory deficits and their carers
