Webinar: Strategies for Antipsychotic Drug Reduction


If we have learned nothing from our collective national effort to reduce antipsychotic drugs it is that the solutions are multifaceted. The way to achieve the reduction is not simply a strategy to prioritize which residents to taper and withdraw but, to discover and train staff in a wide array of approaches and focus areas that individualize the care of residents.

On Wednesday, April 26 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, join national expert in dementia and palliative care Ann Wyatt to discover best practices to improve dementia care on a live web broadcast. To learn more and to register, visit ahcancalED here.

Strategies for Antipsychotic Drug Reduction is part of a webinar series that covers each of the AHCA and NCAL Quality Initiative measures to help members achieve quality success. These webinars offer a complete understanding of each measure and information from other providers on how they have mastered them.
