Most clinicians know the importance of getting an accurate diagnosis to explain their patient's cognitive decline.  However, far fewer feel comfortable knowing how to quickly and accurately screen and/or diagnose these declines.

In collaboration with the Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Center, Bruno Giordani, PhD, Associate Director, will provide a brief overview of Alzheimer's and HIV- Associated Neurocognitive Disorder (HAND), discuss screening tools available for clinical use and their pros/cons, and discuss tips for referring to neurology/neuropsychology to maximize accurate diagnosis and positive patient outcomes.


  • Elucidate the differences between cognitive impairment in Alzheimer’s disease/Dementia vs Cognitive impairment in HIV and aging.
  • Discuss the pros/cons of using cognitive screening measures.
  • Describe common "pen and paper" and computerized dementia screening options.
  • Discuss the concept of "Multiplexity" and its role in managing older adult patients with HIV.
  • Explain other useful cognitive and behavioral screenings to be considered for use in clinic.
