Description

Dementia is a progressive terminal condition affecting all aspects of a person’s functioning. People with dementia require sensitive communication approaches and skilled interventions. In addition, medications may be used to promote wellbeing, but concerns have been raised about covert medication and use of antipsychotics for managing behavioural problems. In the middle and later stages of dementia, nurses and pharmacists can work in partnership to promote effective person-centred care, ensuring medication is used safely as part of a holistic approach.

Objectives

This module aims to provide information about how the mental health and wellbeing of people in the middle and later stages of dementia can be maintained and promoted through collaborative working between nurses and pharmacists.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Recognise the signs and symptoms associated with the middle and later stages of dementia.
Respond to the needs of people with dementia using communication skills and person-centred interventions.
Collaborate with pharmacists to support appropriate medication use as part of a holistic approach to care.
Advocate for the needs of people with dementia to ensure that medication is used only when needed and, through liaison with pharmacists, is managed to minimise side effects and promote wellbeing.
