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.

- Discuss the concept of "Multiplexity" and its role in managing older adult patients with HIV.
