Still, many haven’t had extensive training on the complexities that make working with this population so challenging. Without appropriate training safety risks grow and opportunities to improve care and quality of life are missed. This 2-day comprehensive course is a must-have for anyone working with older adult patients facing Alzheimer’s Disease, other dementias, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Over two intensive days you’ll discover how you can assess for and differentiate between different types of dementias, maximize daily functioning, better work with significant mental health issues like anxiety, depression and substance use in older patients, and safely and effectively intervene when difficult behaviors arise. No matter your profession, you can’t afford to miss this chance to get the skills, tactics and knowledge you need to provide the best care possible! Objectives: • Explore brain function in older adults, recognize the impact of dementia on brain structure and function, and determine the difference between “normal forgetfulness” and cognitive impairment. • Diagnose Alzheimer’s disease and distinguish it from other dementias by accurately identifying manifestations of each type and understand how these differences impact diagnosis and prognosis in older adults. • Articulate differences between the Folstein Mini-Mental Status examination, SLUMS, and MOCA as screening measuring tools for cognitive impairment and dementia. • Communicate answers to the most difficult questions family members ask regarding diagnosis and prognosis and confidence and sensitivity. • Detect triggers for delusions, resisting care, and combativeness and learn to defuse problem behaviors with clinical strategies that reduce risks and can be adjusted as the disease progresses. • Adapt clinical interventions used in-session to provide patients with individualized care and promote more effective participation in therapy. • Correlate patients’ strengths and limitations to potential therapeutic approaches when developing treatment plans for older adults with mental health issues or dementia. • Maximize support for your clients with tips and tactics for working in partnership with families to improve care and strengthen the therapeutic alliance. • Investigate the concept of caregiver guilt and its implications for the client, clinicians, and those caring for older adults with dementia. • Analyze appropriate and inappropriate sexual behaviors in relationships impacted by dementia and effectively intervene when ability to consent is impaired. • Explore the ethical issues related to dementia and elucidate how end of life issues and elder abuse inform decisions regarding patient responsibility and documentation. • Effectively employ tools that assess for common mental health conditions found in the geriatric population including alcohol abuse, anxiety, and depression and learn to differentiate dementia from depression despite similar clinical manifestations.
Psychopharmacology for Advanced Practice Clinicians: Proven Strategies for Prescription Success (Feb 14, 2020)
Feb 14, 2020 | Contact Hours 6.30 | USD $249.99 | Sacramento, California
Psychopharmacology for Advanced Practice Clinicians: Proven Strategies for Prescription Success is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Feb 14, 2020 at Crowne Plaza Sacramento Northeast, Sacramento, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 Contact Hours. Target Audience: • Nurse Practitioners • Physician Assistants • Physicians • Pharmacists • Nurses • Social Workers • Counselors • Therapists • Psychologists • Case Managers Course Description: Psychiatry is one of the most challenging areas of medicine, secondary to the subjective nature of the specialty. As clinicians, we have no objective data to base our course of treatment on. Psychopharmacology and psychotherapy are our best options in terms of treatments and therapy is only successful if the patient is committed to attending every session, completing their homework, and willing to make the necessary life changes to improve their mental health. Medication can be very helpful in terms of alleviating mental health symptoms; however, choosing the right medication and/or combination of meds is crucial to achieving successful outcomes. Secondary to the psychiatry shortage, providers in other specialties find themselves treating mental health patients, which can present additional challenges. This course will arm attendees with a valuable update on the different classes of psychiatric medications and facilitate a deeper level of understanding in terms of how these medications work on their respective neurotransmitters and how they work in conjunction with one another. It is uncommon for mental health patients to be on only one medication, as a combination of medications is often required to reach the desired level of improvement. After this course, you will be able to identify effective medication regimens for patients based on their psychiatric history and presenting symptoms, ultimately contributing to quality of life improvements in patients with mental health conditions. Course Objectives: • Recognize ways to conceptualize psychiatric symptomatology outside the box. • Evaluate common medical conditions that you may inadvertently diagnose as psychiatric in nature. • Analyze the 4 main neurotransmitters and how their imbalance influences different psychiatric disorders. • Compare efficacy of the newer class of serotonin modulators to the other widely-used antidepressant classes. • Examine frequently asked questions regarding the impact of alcohol and marijuana for patients taking psychotropic medications. • Learn strategic ways to customize treatment plans based on your patient's individual needs.
