Event description

Description

Doing the right thing, in the right way. It sounds easy, but it isn’t always apparent how to accomplish that. Especially in our current provision climate where we are being asked to do more with less. So how can we improve our services, while ensuring we are leading our teams in ways that encourages everyone to do the right thing in the right way? This course looks at our own knowledge base about best practices in dementia support in regard to delirium, distressed behaviour, and depression. It also builds our knowledge about how to critically evaluate our services to improve what we do and how we do it.

This 2 day course is appropriate for managers and leaders of social care services, and following the course the participants will:

  • Recognise the risk factors associated with developing delirium and depression in addition to having a dementia
  • Understand how changes in the brain impact on behaviour and communication
  • Learn to identify potential triggers for stress and distress and develop strategies and interventions for distressed clients in order to reduce the inappropriate use of anti-psychotic medication
  • Reflect on ways to support and involve families of the person with dementia in more meaningful ways
  • Identify specific adaptations for the built environment to support cognitive losses
  • Use new strategies to critically evaluate your service
  • Identify the potential to support culture change
