Alzheimer's expert predict over the next five years 16 million Americans are expected to develop Alzheimer's.
Legislative bill proposals have been introduce to the Food Drug Administrative department in hope that a plan of action is developed to promote needed treatment. Health care providers are developing strategies to ensure that those living with Alzheimer receive adequate medical treatment, drug therapy, and quality care. Question still remains regarding the primary cause of Alzheimer, what are the early onset symptoms of Alzheimer’s, and which treatments are most effective.
The focus on Alzheimer’s care is important to the health care industry because of the projected growth of Americans living with Alzheimer’s over the next five years. The lack of funding in the area of research could cause an adverse effect on the growing Alzheimer’s population. The need for advocacy support on local, state and federal levels is important to the care and management of this aggregate group. The health care industry clinicians are interested in ensuring safe care, fair distribution of funding to care-providing-facilities, and educational training.
The Alzheimer’s Association has made great strides to promote awareness, provide patient and family support, and lobby for research associated with new drug therapies. Legislation has announced the new enactment by the Food Drug Administration Innovation Act of 2012. The Innovation Act, signed by President Obama, will support Alzheimer’s research efforts to reduce number of people affected by this disease. The following questions will help health care clinicians understand the needs of these aggregates:
1. What are the causes of Alzheimer’s?
2. What are the early onset symptoms of Alzheimer’s?
3. What are the treatments of Alzheimer’s?
Alzheimer’s care and management requires educations. Families and groups need interventions that support adequate management. Health care providers are instrumental in facilitating support through Alzheimer’s Associations and focus groups and developing programs for Alzheimer’s caregivers.
In five years, that 16 million people will be affected by this devastating disease. Health care professionals interested will increase in the following areas: interventions, management and treatment. Health care Providers, play an integral part in establishing educational programs that will support and train on prevention care of this aggregate group. It is important that the health care industry coordinate with resources such as the Alzheimer’s Association. Because of the concerted effort of the Alzheimer’s Association, the FDA has implemented plans to help in the management of chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
