ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE: COGNITIVE MEMORY SCREENING AND REFERRAL PROGRAM

The Results

The Results

Screening Outcomes

Evaluation
Screenings were evaluated by:
  1. Identifying how many patients pharmacists appropriately referred and did not refer to their physicians for further evaluation
  2. How many patients referred planned to go to their physicians for follow-up
  3. How many of those referred patients actually followed up with their physicians.
Patient satisfaction with services was evaluated through two mechanisms:
  1. The completion of a voluntary participant satisfaction survey provided to patients at the time they received their screening assessment.
  2. Follow-up phone calls from the pharmacist to participating patients 45 to 90 days after the initial pharmacy-based screening.
