Summary of Event:
With competing expectations of doing more and faster while improving quality and outcomes, rehabilitation professionals face challenges when working with people living with dementia (PLWD). This interactive session offers learners an opportunity to connect dementia-specific content (progression and types of dementia) with level-modified cuing skills to maximize the impact of rehabilitation on functional outcomes. The conclusion of the workshop focuses on two critical areas impacting rehabilitation: pain management and challenging behaviors.
