Summary 

This presentation will use cases to outline some of the challenges to care planning and decision making for patients with dementia in addition to other complex health issues.
We will explore the unique needs of patients and their caregivers when dementia is present and how dementia and frailty interact to inform the decision making process.

 

This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
