Workgroup of Alzheimer’s Association National Plan Says Milestones Are Positive Step in Care and Support of Patients, Caregivers
  New guidelines for Alzheimer's disease patient care and caregiver support developed by the Alzheimer's Association's National Plan Care and Support AlsDemMilestone Workgroup are detailed in a paper, "Report on milestones for care and support under the U.S. National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease," published in the Alzheimer's Association journal Alzheimer's & Dementia. The Milestone Workgroup members and paper co-authors note that under the U.S. national Alzheimer's plan, the National Institutes of Health identified three milestones, passage of which will be necessary in order to meet the plan's biomedical research goal (goal 1). However, similar milestones have not been created for the goals on care (goal 2) and support (goal 3). Member of the workgroup are Malaz A. Boustani, Soo Borson, Kathleen C. Buckwalter, Louis D. Burgio, Joshua Chodosh, Richard H. Fortinsky, David R. Gifford, Lisa P. Gwyther, Mary Jane Koren, Joanne Lynn, Cheryl Phillips, Martha Roherty, Judah Ronch, Claudia Stahl, Lauren Rodgers, Hye Kim, Matthew Baumgart, and Angela Geiger.
