158th ASM: In Clinic Screening for Cognitive Impairment in Older Persons Living without and with HIV

158th Annual Scientific Meeting
In Clinic Screening for Cognitive Impairment in Older Patients Living without and with HIV
Live Virtual - Zoom
Monday, March 27, 2023
6:00 - 8:00 PM EST

Most clinicians know the importance of getting an accurate diagnosis to explain their patient's cognitive decline. However, far fewer feel comfortable knowing how to quickly and accurately screen and/or diagnose these declines. This presentation provides a brief overview of Alzheimer's and HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorder (HAND), screening tools available for clinical use and their pros/cons, and tips for referring to neurology/neuropsychology to maximize accurate diagnosis and positive patient outcomes.

After attending this presentation, learners will be able to:
  • Elucidate the differences between cognitive impairment in Alzheimer's disease/Dementia vs Cognitive Impairment in HIV and aging.
  • Discuss the pros/cons of using cognitive screening measures.
  • Describe common "pen and paper" and computerized dementia screening options.
  • Discuss the concept of "Multiplexity" and its roll in managing older adult patients with HIV.
  • Explain other useful cognitive and behavioral screenings to be considered for use in clinic.
