Overall Objective:

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.


Session 1
Legal, professional and documentation errors often made by nurses in relation to clients with dementia syndromes and so called behaviours.


Session 2
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!


Session 3
Nursing requirements and funding issues; person centred care and non-pharmacological interventions can work for residents.


Session 4
(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
