​Recognising and Managing Cognitive Issues in the Elderly

20 & 27 May 2024

Singapore has one of the most rapidly ageing population; almost one in two persons will be over the age of 65 by 2050.  With this rapidly growing greying population, of particular concern is associated to cognitive conditions. The number of affected elderly with cognitive disorders worldwide is expected to reach 82 million by year 2030. Cognitive issues in the older adults can be attributed to a range of factors such as metabolic issues, delirium, etc. In addition, affected older adults may also experience difficulties in a range of cognitive functions like memory, attention as well as changes in functional skills and behaviours. By understanding the possible contributing factors and causes of the cognitive issues, and knowing how the different dimensions of cognition, functional skills and behaviour interact with each other, the course can help healthcare professionals to better manage and interact with patients with cognitive conditions.

This course aims to enable participants to:

  • Define and identify common cognitive impairments in elderly population which can be caused by different factors

  • Know the common diagnostic criteria for Mild Cognitive Impairments & Dementia (e.g., Alzheimer’s Disease)

  • Understand the common symptoms & presentation

  • Appreciate an overview of management strategies for some of the common cognitive issues
