    SKU: O23WEB25




    This event is now available on-demand in Ed Plus. Subscribe to Ed Plus today to access this webinar and more! This webinar — recorded on Dec. 14, 2022 — is eligible for ACMPE and CEU credit.
    From cancer to cardiovascular care, early detection and management of health issues has had a profound impact on outcomes and people’s lives the world over. However, despite alarming projections around age-related cognitive disorders — dementia cases are expected to increase 40% to almost 80 million cases globally by 2030 alone — early detection methods and practices for brain health have lagged. Technology advancements offer new promise for more practical, efficient, and action-oriented assessments though, paving the way for providers and their patients to gain greater control of cognitive health.
    This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:

    • Use digital cognitive assessments to detect subtle signs of cognitive impairment
    • Discover associations between certain cognitive tests and underlying biology and pathophysiology
    • Derive benefits for providers and patients from digital approaches for early detection
