PROGRAM DETAILS

Evidence-Based Intervention Strategies to Combat Degenerative Neurological Diseases
The statistics of dementia are staggering with an estimated 6.5 million people living with some form of dementia just in the United States. That figure will skyrocket with the aging baby boomer generation. In fact, researchers estimate that by the year 2050, more than 115 million Americans could be living with a degenerative neurological disease resulting in dementia. With the growing number of cases comes a growing need for skilled care.

More than likely, you have been assigned patients with irreversible dementia who appear to have few, if any, new learning abilities. However, your task is to teach them skills such as locking wheelchair brakes for safety, drinking liquids to prevent dehydration, or increasing independence in toileting skills. As daunting as this task may seem, this seminar prepares you for success with these patients by introducing a multidisciplinary, hands-on approach called Skill Intervention.

This innovative seminar presents how to successfully "stage" a patient to ensure selection of appropriate intervention techniques, as well as 6 evidence-based intervention strategies and 3 communication techniques for various therapists and nurses managing patients in the moderate-to-severe stages of dementia (Stages 4-6). With 40 years of experience working with patients suffering from neuropathology disorders, instructor Jane Yakel, MS, CCC-SLP, provides specific step-by-step instructions, along with a comprehensive discussion of the purpose and reason for all strategies and techniques, to ensure ultimate success when implemented. Ms. Yakel presents an interactive course where attendees work in teams to design and practice evidence-based techniques, strategies, and communication skills needed when working with dementia patients. Attendees leave this dynamic and collaborative seminar with the confidence and skills to develop a structured, systematic, and highly individualized therapy program with the abilities to justify their practice.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Successfully "Stage" a patient to ensure selection of appropriate intervention techniques
• Identify the required steps for successful intervention of Spaced Retrieval and practice implementation of that procedure
• Practice hands-on with the communication techniques of Validation Therapy, Re-Direction, and Reflective Listening
• Generate patient-centered goals and skilled document notes on individually identified patients that meet Medicare guidelines
• Identify specific directions for Montessori-Based and Ability-Based intervention techniques and design meaningful therapeutic activities that build upon the patient's spared skills and abilities
• Discuss Reminiscence Therapy and the design of individual and group therapy sessions using specific activities, themes, and kits

She completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Wyoming, specializing in neuropathology.

Additionally, she has taught at the University of Wyoming, Utah State University, and DeVry University (Phoenix). Her diverse background in both the academic and health care arenas has given her ample opportunities to develop strong clinical skills in patient assessment, evaluation, treatment, and patient/family education.

Ms. Yakel has also shared her expertise as an author—particularly in her comprehensive book Dementia: Interventions for Severe Cognitive Impairments—and presenter for national and state board continuing education courses on various topics such as cognitive rehabilitation and dementia, comprehensive assessment of the patient, and cognitive communication disorders in the neurologically impaired.

TESTIMONIALS

The presenter was one of the best I've ever heard in my 26 years as an Occupational Therapist. She expertly combined story telling with pertinent clinical examples, research, and content in cognition. I am leaving the workshop with practical skills to use tomorrow.
Sarah Smiley, OTR

Jane's capacity to combine extensive scholarly knowledge and experiential practicality was greatly appreciated. This seminar was infused with both "why" and "how"! At the end of the day I felt refreshed, renewed, and ready to get to work in more effective ways! Thank you!

Awesome presentation! Gave me more useful keys/tools that had been missing from other courses.
Jennifer Surrett, PTA
