  • Identify three common themes in dementia care issues around the world;
  • Discuss the role of culture in the identification and treatment of dementia;
  • Name at least three key evidence-based resources for persons with dementia and their caregivers from outside the United States that have application here at home; and,
  • Identify at least two leading global health resource organizations on dementia.
