  1. Practice guidelines for the clinical assessment and care management of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias among adults with intellectual disability.

    Article - En anglais

    The AAMR/IASSID practice guidelines, developed by an international workgroup, provide guidance for stage-related care management of Alzheimer's disease, and suggestions for the training and education of carers, peers, clinicians and programme staff.

    The guidelines suggest a three-step intervention activity process, that includes :

    • (1) recognizing changes ;

    • (2) conducting assessments and evaluations ;

    • and (3) instituting medical and care management.

    They also provide guidance for public policies that reflect a commitment for aggressive care of people with Alzheimers's disease and intellectual disability, and avoidance of institutionalization solely because of a diagnosis of dementia.
