Abstract

Alzheimer disease (AD) accounts for most dementia diagnoses. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and antipsychotics are first-line drug therapies for cognitive decline and to manage neuropsychiatric symptoms, respectively. Because AD is relentlessly progressive, NPs will need to provide long-term support to patients and their caregivers.
