Advanced practice nurse with a patient who has Alzheimer's Disease.

In your practice do you see patients with dementia or their caregivers?

If so, we need your feedback. The University of Washington School of Nursing is conducting a study to investigate a new educational program that integrates into primary care a proven intervention for patients with dementia and their caregivers. We need your input to ensure that this training is relevant and applicable to current practice. 

Please help us advance evidence-based interventions for people with dementia into primary care and other outpatient settings. Participants will earn 5 contact hours of continuing education in nursing for participation and completion of program activities. Teaching methods include lecture, manual and discussion. Registration is free. Refreshments will be provided.
