Alzheimer's Advanced MasterClass – Module 1
For dementia specialists from neurology or old age psychiatry and geriatricians or care of the elderly consultants.
Halifax Hall, Sheffield University Campus
Endcliffe Vale Road
This MasterClass is taught as two modules. Our programme will include advanced aspects of diagnosis, neuroimaging in AD, cognitive assessments, clinical trials, the global development perspective, the use and development of fluid biomarkers, the state of the art in cognitive assessment and more.
We aim for people to come to debate the cutting edge in Alzheimer’s disease and immerse themselves in the literature, but also to develop QI projects, research projects or even business cases afterwards. In spring/summer 2022 we’ll bring our delegates back to present posters on their work and award a prize for the best. Delegates must complete all aspects of module 1, the inter-module project, and module 2 to gain their certificate.
