FTD & ALS: A Collaborative Approach to Diagnosis and Care

June 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

1600 × 836 - FTD & ALS - 2

We know of several genes that can cause hereditary FTD, ALS, and ALS with FTD, with C9orf72 the most common. Yet genetics is not the complete story, as these conditions can appear without a known genetic cause. In this AFTD Healthcare Professional Webinar, neurologists from Massachusetts General Hospital who specialize in FTD and ALS will talk about diagnosis and disease management when both conditions are present in the same person. Clinicians in neurology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, and geriatrics, along with those in primary care, are invited to learn more about this challenging and complex condition.

Learners will be able to:

  • Recognize hallmark symptoms for FTD and ALS.
  • Describe the diagnostic process for FTD and ALS.
  • List the most common approaches to treatment and disease management when these disorders are both present in one patient.
  • Recognize the potential of a genetic causation for FTD/ALS and how best to inform families.
