Despite the growing prevalence and devastating effects of Alzheimer disease (AD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) often goes unrecognized in the primary care setting. This brief podcast highlights the need for primary care providers to identify individuals with MCI as early as possible so they can be assessed and, if diagnosed with AD, treated promptly. Expert faculty will explore the manifold benefits of early evaluation, which can include identifying reversible causes of MCI, taking advantage of new effective treatments, and reducing patients’ risk of premature mortality. You’ll walk away from this podcast with strategies to help you earlier identify these patients and, ultimately, maintain their cognitive abilities and quality of life for a longer period.
This short podcast will focus on new and emerging monoclonal antibody therapies targeting β-amyloid, with a focus on the importance of early recognition and diagnosis of Alzheimer disease to allow prompt treatment for patients in the early stages of the disease who may derive the most benefit from these agents.

In this AdaptED learning module, learners will engage with the adaptive learning algorithm to explore the assessment and diagnosis of Alzheimer disease (AD). The activity will provide practical guidance for primary care providers on the clinical diagnosis of AD, including cognitive testing. It will also discuss neuroimaging and fluid markers to aid in diagnosis and monitoring of AD, including ongoing research in serum biomarkers that may soon expedite disease recognition. The AdaptED module will provide learners with evidence-based education in a convenient format that facilitates quick application of the material.
