This points to a future approach to service delivery that is characterized by:
 Expanded community education and training;
 Improved service coordination;
 Shared client information;
 Team-based care;
 Promotion & dissemination of the most current standards and guidelines for care;
 Education & training for service providers to implement those standards and
guidelines; and
 Improved access to resources and services in the early stages of this disease and,hopefully, a delay in the need for more intensive services in later stages.
