In this webinar we will discuss the complex interplay of mood and cognition in late life. How mood disorder can impact risk of developing dementia, and its diagnosis, and risk of depression in those with existing cognitive disorder. We will also touch on challenges in assessment and management of depression in the context of cognitive disorders.
This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
