DCC-Dementia Therapy Applications Live Virtual Training

  • Wednesday, October 14 - Thursday, October 15, 2020
  • Central Standard Time

Overview

With Dementia Therapy Applications training, you can achieve positive outcomes that change lives.

A therapist trained in functional cognitive assessment and intervention will gain specialized skills to help those living with cognitive impairment thrive. Therapists are trained to create goals to prioritize the wants and needs of the person in their care, while fully considering cognitive level so goals are realistic and achievable. Therapists also learn to tailor treatment interventions to the cognitive level, and to identify and establish the appropriate discharge conditions.

Specifically, this two-day program will enable therapists to:

  • Optimize therapy benefits, outcomes and reimbursement
  • Understand and apply the concept of person-centered care and stage-informed care
  • Decrease dementia-related behaviors using a non-pharmacological approach
  • Decrease the risk of repeat hospitalizations by confidently providing the correct discharge recommendations
  • Confidently identify the right level of service and treatment plan to deliver the best outcomes
  • Learn to administer and interpret the Allen Cognitive Level Screen (ACLS)
  • More effectively train care partners to improve outcomes and demonstrate the value of therapy

Note: You will earn continuing education credit for seven contact hours per day
