Vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) or vascular dementia can be a preventative disorder. Stroke and heart attack risk factors, namely hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, also contribute to this disorder. Management of these risk factors can not only delay or prevent the onset of vascular dementia but also mitigate the progression of the disease once a person is affected. This online event will focus on the identification of VCI in clinical practice.
