Communication of Dementia Diagnoses: Physician Experiences and Developing Best Practices
Share your experiences with giving dementia diagnoses.
We want to learn about healthcare provider experiences when giving diagnoses of dementia, including barriers and facilitators to giving dementia diagnoses, comfort with discussing dementia, and suggestions for optimal communication.
This study will be completed remotely. No in-person visits required.
This information will be used to help develop strategies for giving dementia diagnoses that reflect the challenges faced in daily clinical practice.
