LeadingAge Live Learning Webinar - Improving Dementia Care: Reducing Anti-Psychotic Medications


August 1, 2012

2p.m. EST - 3p.m. EST


Dementia-related behaviors can be strenuous on the individual, care team, family and friends. Expanding our knowledge of person-centered approaches ensures that not-for-profit aging services providers continue to be on the forefront of care management, remain in compliance with the latest regulations and most importantly, keep the individual at the heart of everything we do. 

Key Takeaways

  • An overview of CMS’ initiative to reduce the use of antipsychotic drugs in nursing home residents by 15% by the end of this year.
  • Discover non-pharmacological, person-centered approaches to manage dementia-related behaviors.
  • Obtain resources to help ensure appropriate use of medications for dementia care in skilled nursing, assisted living and other settings.
