A series of 4 sessions discussing the dangers of administering or managing the administration, of drugs such as risperidone, to patients or residents with a dementia syndrome.
There is an objective for each session, but the participant should be able to discuss the issue of using antipsychotic drugs in clients with a dementia syndrome vs person centred non-pharmacological interventions for behaviours.
Legal, professional and documentation errors often made by nurses in relation to clients with dementia syndromes and so called behaviours.
The old and the new antipsychotics, which are safest; what they all do; required nursing actions when administering antipsychotics and .not enough time’ is not an option!
Nursing requirements and funding issues; person centred care and non-pharmacological interventions can work for residents.
(continued from Session3)
Knowing which interventions will not work and why; knowing which interventions work for what behaviours; measuring the results of effective, behaviour management
