The Alzheimer’s Project New ‘App’ for Physicians

August 4, 2017

 

Champions for Health is excited to present a new tool to aid physicians in screening, evaluation, diagnosis, and management of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Based on guidelines set forth by The Alzheimer’s Project Clinical Roundtable San Diego, Champions for Health has helped to develop a new application that helps physicians follow the suggested algorithms, keeps cognitive test results in one place for every patient, guides them through treatment planning, and allows them to send this information to a secure email for input into a patient’s electronic health record. This new mobile application is best used in conjunction with the knowledge learned through The Alzheimer’s Project CME Courses and the resources available through the Champions for Health webpage for The Alzheimer’s Project.

 

For more information on the ‘app’, please check back and follow the link to information page that will be posted shortly! Until then, the application is available and ready for use in the Apple Store and the Google Play Store at the links below, or search AlzDxRx

The Alzheimer’s Project Continuing Education Courses

July 21, 2017

 

Champions for Health is proud to announce, in partnership with The Doctors Company, the introduction of a cost-free, Continuing Medical Education (CME) course series based on guidelines and materials produced by The Alzheimer’s Project San Diego Clinical Roundtable. The series seeks to educate primary care providers and support staff on standardized screening, evaluation, and disease management of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, so they are empowered to deal more effectively with the rising number of individuals in their practice who are experiencing cognitive decline.

 

The Alzheimer’s Project courses can be found here

 

These courses are meant to act as training tools, that can be taken at the learner’s own convenience. We highly encourage you to revisit as needed. Courses are available to all interested; check with your specific professional continuing education guidelines for eligibility to earn credits.
