Abstract

Diagnosis of cognitive impairment is difficult to achieve in primary care, but early diagnosis allows patients and families to plan for future needs. This practice improvement project teaches medical assistants to offer cognitive impairment screening to patients 75 and older, when they come to see their primary care provider.
