Vol. 23, No. 3, June/July 2017

Case Management in Patients With Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease CEU

By Jennifer Voorlas, MSG, CMC

Patients with early-onset AD and their families face great obstacles—medically, socially, and psychologically. Depending on the age at onset, they may also face financial hardships. Helping patients and families cope with this disorder requires special skills in evaluating, counseling, applying for disability benefits, helping to shore up social networks, and more. Read how you can help develop a full care plan for these patients.

Coming Full Circle: Multidirectional Communication
Medical and Behavioral Health Services and the Patient CEU

By Madeleine Y. Gómez, PhD; Mark Johns, PsyD; Eric Sanchez Gomez, BS; and Mitch Hall, PhD

Many patients with behavioral health issues also have medical problems. If these people enter the healthcare system through the behavioral side, they may not yet have a primary care physician or other clinician who is managing their care. The same is true moving in the other direction. Those treating patients on either side of the healthcare system must work hard to develop multidirectional communication to provide optimal whole-person care.
