The May series of workshops for Registered Nurses is brought to you by the New Zealand Aged Care Association Education Trust.
These workshops will provide quality provision training for Registered Nurses working in aged care.
We are pleased to have secured Dr Michal Boyd for this series of workshops addressing how to manage challenging behaviours with alternative strategies and the latest frailty guides.
Covered topics will include:
|"Residents of aged care facilities live with advanced frailty and require complex management and support for their physical, functional and mental health needs 24 hours a day. This is particularly true for the over 60% of residents with some level of cognitive impairment. Most people diagnosed with cognitive impairment will progress through a stage of Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD). This can result in distressing symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations and disinhibited behaviours, as well as paranoia, depression, anxiety and aggressive outbursts. Nurses and Healthcare Assistants play a significant role in managing these symptoms on a day to day basis and by requesting and administering psychotropic medications. This presentation will discuss pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to caring for residents exhibiting BPSD signs and symptoms and is based on information from the Health Quality and Safety Commission Frailty Care Guides." - Dr Michal Boyd|
