Dementia is a much-feared topic because there is no specific medical cure.  Understanding of the multiple contributors to the dementias is a rapidly evolving field.  An active area of research involves a preventive approach.  Confronting difficult subjects such as driving and advance care planning is generally avoided.
Learning objectives:
Recognize the most common dementias other than Alzheimer’s Dementia
-Understand that cognitive decline may be prevented or slowed through lifestyle choices.
-Acknowledge the importance of the caregiver as part of the treatment and management plan.
-Feel confident discussing patient values soon after diagnosis: driving, advance care planning

Having the time to discuss the diagnosis/prognosis, the patient’s values, and the course of action is probably the most daunting.  By using a team approach some of the burden can be distributed.
