NONPHARMACOLOGICAL ALTERNATIVES TO PSYCHOTROPICMANAGEMENT WEBINAR
March 7, 2019
Skilled nursing facilities are facing great challenges when it comes to caring for individuals with a wide array of behaviors and continual expectations to provide that care using the least amount of medication. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as of Q2 2018 the use of antipsychotic medication in California was 11.5 percent compared to the national average of 14.6 percent. The improvements California has achieved will require continued focus and new techniques to improve or even maintain based on the new resident profile.
Participants will learn the core concepts of successful behavioral management, how to conduct an individualized assessment and root-cause analysis, as well as review individualized non-pharmacological interventions.
Look for the next psychotropic management webinars on June 6, 2019, September 5, 2019 and December 5, 2019
