Inter-Professional Teaming Keynote Lecture: Skilled clinicians can now recognize and diagnose over 50 forms or causes of dementia. Each has identifying characteristics. Some are reversible or can be stabilized, whereas others are irreversible, progressive and terminal. Early detection has significant benefits. Multiple disciplines of professionals offer services for clients with dementia and their families or caregivers. Combining efforts can provide optimal services and supports to such clients. This seminar will examine the nature of dementia and the role of inter-professional teaming in helping individuals with dementia and their caregivers.
