New HHQI University CE Course-Creating Dementia-Capable Systems of Healthcare

One out of 10 people age 65 or older in the United States has Alzheimer's Disease, which is more than 5 million Americans. Is your organization prepared?

During this course, you will watch the  October 2017 Underserved Populations (UP) Network webinar featuring guest expert Debra Cherry, Executive Vice President of Alzheimer's Greater Los Angeles. During the webinar, Ms. Cherry suggests how your organization and clinicians can improve the care of dementia patients in the community setting using components from the Dementia Cal MediConnect Project that her organization found to be successful. Indicators, barriers, and strategies to improve the dementia care provided by your organization are also discussed.
