Webinar: Alzheimer’s – Spotting The Early Signs & Supporting Your Patients

This event is available to purchase on-demand and was first delivered on Tuesday 16th February 2021.


Those suffering with Alzheimer’s have had a particularly difficult time with the challenges and restrictions that Covid-19 brought in the past year. Not only are they likely to be in one of the most vulnerable age groups, but according to the Alzheimer’s Society, they have been experiencing ‘increased loneliness and an acute sense of fear’. However, spotting the signs early on can help us to better manage the condition, and there may be some promising new treatments on the horizon.


Learn how you can spot the first signs and symptoms in your patients, the necessary investigations to carry out and treatment options available, as well as managing patients who are currently in the later stages of the disease. Join Dr Emer MacSweeney, CEO, Medical Director and Consultant Neuroradiologist, at brain and mind clinic Re:Cognition Health for this fascinating webinar.


Starting with a general overview of Dementia, we will be exploring the key differences between Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, understanding who is more likely to get it and the risk factors involved. Symptoms are generally mild to start with, but begin to worsen and interfere with daily life as time goes on. To ensure you are able to spot the early signs, we will be discussing memory problems in the short- and long-term, as well as issues with speech, sight, orientation and concentration. 


Dr MacSweeney’s wealth of experience in reading and interpreting scan images will also be invaluable in our discussion of investigations for early diagnosis. We will be looking at MRI and CT imaging to understand how to identify the condition, as well as other assessments, such as memory tests.


Although there is no cure for Alzeimer’s disease, support, such as occupational therapy, lifestyle changes, and holistic treatments – including physical and mental exercises – can be very helpful. We will be delving into how you can help care for your patients and support them through management techniques and communication. Drug therapies are also available and we will examine the pros and cons of each treatment. Lastly, we will be exploring the future of Alzheimer’s through modern treatments which have potential to be lifechanging.



We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.
