Effective dementia care? We need it! Therapists are hungry for the knowledge to advance their professional skills.
Given that 26 million people worldwide have Alzheimer's disease and 106 million could be afflicted by 2050, any treatment that alters the course of the disease will become a multi-billion-dollar drug. Major pharmaceutical companies and biotech startups are racing to develop the first drugs to delay or reverse Alzheimer’s. Medical device makers are also developing screening tests to more accurately diagnose Alzheimer’s, and health care providers are trying to find ways to better manage patients.
