• Learning Objectives / Performance Objectives: what should the learner be able to accomplish after the activity? Objectives should bridge the gap between the identified need/gap and the desired result.

- Weigh the the risks and benefits of interventional management of atrial fibrillation when using new cardiac monitoring devices for stroke patients.
- Examine the evidence for and against using interventional treatment for acute stroke, identify the gaps in current research, and define good candidates for treatment with intervention.
- Examine the evidence for and against using PFO closure in patients with stroke, identify the gaps in current research, and define good candidates for treatment with PFO closure.
- Identify patients at high risk of stroke after TIA.  
- Review the evidence for the benefit of aggressive vascular risk factor modification in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia.
- Discuss palliative measures available for patients with dementia.
- Evaluate and treat patients with cognitive concerns using the new diagnostic studies, diagnostic criteria, and symptomatic therapy available.
