Objectives
  1. Explore brain function in older adults, recognize the impact of dementia on brain structure and function, and determine the difference between “normal forgetfulness” and cognitive impairment.
  2. Diagnose Alzheimer’s disease and distinguish it from other dementias by accurately identifying manifestations of each type and understand how these differences impact diagnosis and prognosis in older adults.
  3. Articulate differences between the Folstein Mini-Mental Status examination, SLUMS, and MOCA as screening measuring tools for cognitive impairment and dementia.
  4. Communicate answers to the most difficult questions family members ask regarding diagnosis and prognosis with confidence and sensitivity.
  5. Detect triggers for delusions, resisting care, and combativeness and learn to defuse problem behaviors with clinical strategies that reduce risks and can be adjusted as the disease progresses.
  6. Adapt clinical interventions used in-session to provide patients with individualized care and promote more effective participation in therapy.
  7. Correlate patients’ strengths and limitations to potential therapeutic approaches when developing treatment plans for older adults with mental health issues or dementia.
  8. Maximize support for your clients with tips and tactics for working in partnership with families to improve care and strengthen the therapeutic alliance.
  9. Investigate the concept of caregiver guilt and its implications for the client, clinicians, and those caring for older adults with dementia
  10. Analyze appropriate and inappropriate sexual behaviors in relationships impacted by dementia and effectively intervene when ability to consent is impaired.
  11. Explore the ethical issues related to dementia and elucidate how end of life issues and elder abuse inform decisions regarding patient responsibility and documentation.
  12. Effectively employ tools that assess for common mental health conditions found in the geriatric population including alcohol abuse, anxiety, and depression and learn to differentiate dementia from depression despite similar clinical manifestations.
