Improving Safety and Quality of Life in Persons with Dementia and Their Families is organized by University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) and will be held from May 10, 2018 - May 10, 2020. The target audience for this medical event is healthcare professionals, RN, LVN, LNFA, SW, LPC, and Home Health Caregivers in three types of care settings: facility-based staff, home health caregivers, and primary care physician office staff and family caregivers. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 Contact Hour. Course Description: Quality of life (QOL) has been identified as a primary goal of treatment for persons living with dementia and their families. Reported factors shown to influence QOL include mood, engagement in pleasant activities and ability to perform activities of daily living. The deficits of sensory input and processing and judgment that occur in dementia patients have a great impact on their safety and ability to perform ADL’s, maintain mood and level of engagement. This training video addresses interventions and tools that help maintain a QOL for dementia patients and their families. These interventions start with understanding sensory changes and risk awareness deficits in patients and best ways to educate the family caregivers. Special considerations for patients living alone or who don’t have a primary caregiver will be discussed along with community and professional resources. This training video also explores the family caregiver as the “secondary patient” and best practices tools at increasing caregiver competence and confidence and decreasing risk for injury or adverse events. Course Objectives are : • Demonstrate best practices to improve quality-of-life in persons with dementia including shared decision making; • Discuss the sensory deficits in dementia to anticipate and prepare for safety issues including; pain management, falls, wandering, and activities of daily living; • Describe the “secondary patient” and best practices in emphasizing healthy behaviors; • Evaluate communication skills between the healthcare professional, person with dementia and their primary caregivers including advance care planning; • Identify and access resources for safety and quality-of-life Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
