CE Hours: 1 BRN & 1 NHAP(P) Requested

Long-term care doctors in skilled nursing settings strive to offer the best care possible 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. California performs better than 44 other states, ranking sixth lowest in the nation in using antipsychotics in skilled nursing facilities.

This webinar will help participants 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.
