This year the American Academy of Neurology annual meeting is in Denver, where Manizhe Eslami-Amirabadi and UCSF neurology resident Michael Trainer presented their work.

Manizhe presented “Financial activities and mismanagement by people with dementia as reported in a nationally representative caregiver survey,” which takes a new approach to estimating the impact of disease-related impairments in decision-making. Michael presented “Ethical shared decision-making for novel anti-amyloid therapies,” which applies prior work on tools for improving shared decision-making (mostly utilized so far in non-neurologic disorders) to the complex decisions facing clinicians, patients, and families regarding new biologically-based treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. Congrats to both of them, and thanks to everyone who came out to ask questions and give feedback!
