Through plenary sessions and interactive workshops, some of the basis for dementia care will be reviewed but practical applications of case finding, diagnosis, treatment, communication between professionals, competency and management of behavior disturbances will be emphasized. Each workshop session will be approximately half hour duration. Registrants will be able to participate in all 6 workshops.
