Filetype[PDF-3.02 MB]

  • Description:
    This module is part of the Alzheimer’s Association curriculum, A Public Health Approach to Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias. Developed as part of a cooperative agreement with CDC’s Healthy Aging Program, and in partnership with Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health, this curriculum addresses cognitive health, cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease and is for use by undergraduate faculty in schools and programs of public health. Module 2: Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias – The Basics provides background information on Alzheimer’s and other dementias. It lays a foundation for what cognitive health is and how changes within the brain may lead to cognitive aging, cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The module then shifts to focus more specifically on Alzheimer’s disease. Learners gain a general understanding about the three stages of Alzheimer’s disease, risk factors, and how the disease is diagnosed and treated. The module also addresses unique aspects of Alzheimer’s disease (including financial hardship, stigma, and vulnerability to abuse), and the role and burden of caregivers.
