Don’t miss the upcoming education for the week of March 15-19 that SDAHO and fellow associations are offering.
Save the Date for the March webinar featuring the Florida Hospital Association and the topic Patient & Family Engagement During the Era of COVID-19, taking place Tuesday March 16, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. Hospital efforts to engage patients and families in their care and in hospital improvement activities were abruptly halted when the COVID pandemic hit. Visitation was prohibited or extremely limited, changing the way patients and families were involved in their care. Florida hospitals will share how they pivoted their PFE initiatives and lessons learned in both their acute and rehabilitation settings as a result of COVID-19.
This workshop describes the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease to then take a deeper look into the behaviors those living with Alzheimer’s may display. This includes wandering, sundown syndrome, and aggressive/agitative behaviors. The goal is to recognize these behaviors as attempts to fulfill an unmet need – to help others search past the behaviors and discover what the individual is trying to communicate. This approach will help professionals, caregivers and family members learn to separate the individual from the disease to then provide support and identify the unique needs of each person affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
Registration fee is $25.
