Training Course Syllabus:


Dementia: Therapeutic Intervention and Program Development  by Peggy Watson

PROGRAM DETAILS

In 2005, there were 42.6 million Medicare recipients. It is estimated that by 2030, when all the baby boomers are enrolled, there will be 77 million Medicare recipients. Dementia will claim its share. Dementia therapeutic intervention differs from the traditional therapy model. The focus of therapy with dementia is to achieve a better quality of life for the patient while managing safety (primary), dysphagia, repetitive behavior, negative behaviors, rummaging, wandering and other dementia-induced behaviors. Many questions arise when the traditional therapy model of 'improvement' is not going to be the outcome. Will Medicare reimburse for those who will eventually decline along the dementia timeline? Can you use dementia as a primary diagnosis? What goals can you write that are reimbursable for dementia patients? Medicare regulations themselves and proper 'staging' of the patient are the keys to appropriate and reimbursable candidate selection, goal writing and intervention.

This course contains information to help produce a successful team approach to dementia programming driven by Medicare's regulations and guidelines for intervention focusing on safety, mobility, communication, socialization, behaviors and dysphagia. This directly involves nursing and therapy working together to provide an environment where every patient has the right to achieve and maintain the highest level of function possible. Participants will learn how to stage the dementia patient and write appropriate goals based on staging and will identify how to incorporate a Functional Maintenance Program into the plan of care. This is Medicare's "insurance" that strategies implemented by the therapy team are also utilized by nurses and other support staff to help the patient achieve and maintain the highest level of function. Although this course covers dysphagia goals and interventions for patients with dementia, it is not to be considered a training course in dysphagia and assumes the participant is competent in bedside evaluations.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Describe dementia in terms of 'staging' and write effective discipline-specific goals
  • Identify dysphagia behaviors common in dementia and the role of therapists, nurses and other staff in successful dysphagia management
  • Learn about the unique role of nurses in a successful dementia program
  • Utilize appropriate interventions and activities for achieving stated goals and managing difficult behaviors
  • Learn why the Functional Maintenance Program (FMP) is an important conclusion to dementia therapy and use an interdisciplinary approach to writing, implementing and maintaining the FMP
  • Examine the causes and symptoms of dementia
  • Write appropriate goals to address deficits in mobility, communication, socialization, behaviors and dysphagia
  • Match goals to the patient's level of function and stage of dementia
  • Integrate a Functional Maintenance Program (FMP) into the plan of care
  • Utilize quarterly screening to maintain proper staging and intervention
  • Develop dysphagia interventions for the dementia patient
  • Design dementia programming that capitalizes on the skills and care opportunities of each member of the interdisciplinary team
  • Utilize the course handbook, filled with detailed goals, interventions, strategies and activities, as an everyday resource in developing your skilled intervention program
