Description

Dementia affects all aspects of a person’s life, including memory, functioning, emotions and social relationships. Dementia care is a national priority because of an increasingly older population and the effect of the condition on individuals, families and communities. Early recognition, and appropriate care and treatment improve the experiences of people with dementia, particularly in hospital or care settings. Nurses can work collaboratively with pharmacists to promote health and maintain the wellbeing of people in the early stages of dementia.

Objectives

This module aims to promote mental health and high quality care for people in the early stages of dementia through the use of effective communication skills and therapeutic interventions, including appropriate use of medication. The role of the pharmacist in helping nurses to achieve these aims is also discussed.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Offer appropriate advice to people of all ages about how to reduce their risk of developing dementia.
Recognise dementia and promote early diagnosis, with subsequent appropriate care and support.
Understand how to respond to the needs of people in the early stages of dementia using communication skills and a range of person-centred interventions.
Appreciate the role of pharmacists and the importance of liaison to ensure safe medication use as part of a holistic approach to meet the needs of people with dementia.
