This educational activity is a collaboration between Des Moines University and WelseyLife.
Wesley Life medical, nursing, and executive directors and DMU faculty, clinic staff, and students.
The purpose of this educational session is to educate the attendees on use of psychoactive medications for nursing home and assisted living residents with dementia. By sharing the research on the effect of psychoactive medications on this population, we hope to clearly communicate the dangers associated with using certain types of psychoactive medications in dementia patients. We will offer non-pharmacological approaches and tools to manage the behaviors frequently experienced by people with dementia. By reducing psychoactive medications for our dementia residents, we expect to see increased alertness, reduced fall risk, and possibly delays in cognitive decline.
- Share current trends of psychoactive medication use for memory support residents
- Discuss tools available to manage behaviors
- Share success stories from communities with low psychoactive medication usage
- Facilitate discussion on setting targets for psychoactive medication use reduction
