Clinical Tools for Healthcare Professionals
The Alzheimer’s Disease Center has developed several clinical tools to aid healthcare professionals when diagnosing a person with Alzheimer’s disease. Among these tools is The Alzheimer’s Health Care Handbook: How to Get the Best Medical Care for Your Relative with Alzheimer’s Disease, in and out of the Hospital by Mary S. Mittelman, DrPH, and Cynthia Epstein, ACSW (New York: Marlowe & Company; 2003).
