Clinical Approach to Patients at Risk for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) - October 18, 2023
To claim credit you must have attended the October 18 program.
CTE can only be definitively diagnosed through postmortem examination. Nonetheless, living patients need assistance and the symptoms of suspected CTE can be managed in a clinical setting. Join this webinar with Jesse Mez, MD and Michael Alosco, PhD of the Boston University Memory and Aging Clinical discuss the interdisciplinary clinical approach to patients at risk for CTE.
Primary Care Physicians, Family Practice Physicians, Neurologists, Behavioral Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Neuropsychologists, Psychologists, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Physician Assistants. Allied health professionals welcome.
At the end of this activity, the learner or the healthcare team should be able to:
- Discuss the latest CTE diagnostic updates
- Describe each item in the 2021 NINDS TES Criteria for non-diagnostic considerations and screenings
- Outline 4 limitations of cognitive screening and 4 best uses of brief screening measures
- Evaluate MRI, TAU PET, CSF fluid, blood test biomarkers
- Translate clinical assessments into clinical diagnosis and therapeutic work-ups
- Describe the responsibilities of a typical memory and aging clinic's interprofessional team member roles including when and how a neuropsychologist can provide clinical insight relative to physicians and allied health staff such as neurologists, psychiatrists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or counselors conducting clinical assessments or biomarker testing.
