Primary care provider attitudes and practices evaluating and managing patients with neurocognitive disorders.
The prevalence of dementia, a neurocognitive disorder (NCD), is expected to triple in the next 30 years. In this study, the investigators surveyed a national sample of primary care physicians to characterize their attitudes and practices with respect to the evaluation and management of NCDs.

Patient stakeholder versus physician preferences regarding amyloid PET testing.
Patient and caregiver perspectives on amyloid positron emission tomography (PET) use are largely unexplored, particularly as compared with clinician views. In this study, the investigators surveyed clinicians, patients, caregivers, and dementia advocates on topics relating to an evidence-based guideline on amyloid PET use. They found that patients and caregivers emphasized the importance of having a dementia diagnosis and placed more value on testing and outcomes for asymptomatic populations than clinicians.
