Improving Patient Adherence and Quality
of Life in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD): Optimizing Adverse Event
Management and Imaging for Emerging Therapies
A continuing medical education
activity provided by NAMCP and AAMCN
New Frontiers in the Treatment and Management of AD: What Managed
Care Needs to
Know about New and Emerging Therapies is a three-part webinar series
This is Part 2 of the series focusing on improving patient adherence
and quality of life in alzheimer’s disease
This activity is an archive from the webinar held November 13, 2020
This activity is valid from December 15, 2020 to December 1, 2022
Instructions for CME/NCPD: Complete the pre-test, listen to the
audio and view the slides, complete the post test, complete the
evaluation form and hit submit. You will be asked to enter your name
and email address on the pre-test, evaluation and post-test. If you
close your internet browser without completing the post test, you
will have ONE more opportunity to complete. A score of 70% must be
achieved on the post test to receive continuing education credits.
If you do not pass the post test after two attempts, you will not be
eligible to try again. Once you complete the evaluation form and
score 70% or higher on your post test, you will automatically be
given your certificate.
To print or save your certificate, you will need to click on the
“download” button and either print or save.
This activity is intended for healthcare professionals practicing in
managed care environments.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting
an estimated 5 million people in the United States. It is a
cognitive disorder that includes behavioral impairment that
interferes with social and occupational functioning. Alzheimer’s
disease care costs $172 billion annually in the US alone.
Fortunately for patients with Alzheimer's disease, new and emerging
therapies, including anti-beta-amyloid (Aß) monoclonal antibodies,
are undergoing late stage clinical trials or have been submitted for
regulatory review. This program will provide strategies to overcome
challenges in the optimal treatment and management of Alzheimer’s
disease and highlight the role of managed care professionals in
making informed decisions on these new and emerging therapies that
will improve quality of life, significantly reduce clinical decline,
and minimize costs throughout the healthcare system.
Upon completion of this
activity, participants will be able to:
Examine challenges to patient
adherence, administration and quality of life in the management
of alzheimer’s disease (AD)
Discuss strategies to implement
emerging therapies, including monoclonal antibodies, into the
treatment paradigm, especially as it relates to patient
adherence and quality of life
Evaluate adverse events associated
with emerging therapies and strategies to mitigate and manage
these predictable toxicities that have been reported in clinical
Explore the role of neuroimaging in
the diagnosis of AD, confirmation of beta-amyloid deposition,
monitoring of disease progression, and monitoring of ARIA
associated with investigative anti-β amyloid monoclonal antibody
therapies for maintaining patient adherence and QoL
Identify practices that managed care
professionals can use both now and in the future to help improve
outcomes, reduce clinical decline and ensure appropriate and
timely access to emerging therapies in AD
