Cerebrovascular disease plays an important supporting role in many persons with mild cognitive impairment and dementia, and often co-occurs with Alzheimer’s disease. This web seminar will provide an overview of the role of cerebrovascular disease in late-life cognitive impairment, including risk factors and common misconceptions, and explore the challenges associated with understanding the role of vascular risk factors, stroke history and stroke imaging findings. In addition, issues related to managing the symptoms of vascular dementia will be discussed. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the web seminar.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • List the main risk factors for vascular dementia and options to help prevent vascular dementia;
  • Describe why diagnosis is difficult with vascular dementia;
  • Discuss misconceptions related to vascular dementia; and,
  • Describe the similarities between managing symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and managing symptoms of vascular dementia.
