In this module of a Four-Part Expert Interview Series, Max Lugavere, along with Dr. Richard S. Isaacson, course chair, will explore non-pharmacological approaches to managing patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Multi-modal intervention factors, including nutrition exercise, sleep hygiene and continued education, among others, will be reviewed, and best practices relayed. The faculty will also highlight recent clinical trial data regarding non-pharmacological methods of AD patient care. Clinical relevance of said data, both now and in the pipeline, will be deliberated. Following this educational activity, learners will have a better grasp of non-pharmacological intervention techniques as well as their potential impact in current and forthcoming AD patient care.
