Description
This course provides the most current and comprehensive scope of knowledge for physicians, clinicians and researchers in the early assessment and management of vascular cognitive impairment. The presentations from experts in the field will challenge and expand on contemporary patient care across the age continuum. 

Learning Objectives 
At the completion of this online course, the learner will be able to:

  1. Compare and contrast diagnostic findings of pathophysiologic features of neurocognitive decline.
  2. Discuss social determinants of health associated with higher risk for developing vascular disease associated with neurocognitive decline.
  3. Debate the roles of primary and secondary prevention strategies in vascular disease outcomes.
  4. Converse on current clinical trial outcomes and the application of evidence to positively impact vascular cognitive impairment.
