Join us as Geriatrician Elizabeth Landsverk, M.D., presents a topic of interest to elder care professionals, particularly to Discharge Planners and Registered Nurses.

Professionals involved with evaluating patients discharging from a hospital, treating or caring for patients/clients who may have undiagnosed dementia will benefit most from the information presented.
