Course Description

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, eventually even the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with AD, symptoms first appear after age 60. AD is caused by a disease that affects the brain. In the absence of disease, the human brain often can function well into the 10th decade of life. Not so long ago, we were not able to do much for people with AD. Today, that situation is changing. Thousands of scientists, voluntary organizations, and health care professionals are studying AD so that they can find ways to manage, treat, and one day prevent this terrible disease.

This training was developed by National Institute on Drug Abuse
(NIH) to assist clinical professionals in understanding Alzheimer’s disease, research on causes, diagnosis, prevention, potential treatments, and caregiver support. This training is in the public domain. CEUnits.com has developed a course based on this public information.
