Free Staff Training: Changing Talk Online (CHATO) to Reduce Behavioral Symptoms in Dementia Care

Researchers at the University of Kansas School of Nursing are seeking nursing homes to test the new online version of the evidence-based Changing Talk (CHAT) communication training program.

CHAT educates staff about reducing elderspeak (infantilizing communication) and results in reduced behavioral symptoms and need for psychotropic medication for residents with dementia.

The new online version, consists of three one-hour interactive modules that are completed online from anywhere the Internet can be accessed.

There is no cost to the facility and continuing education credit is available.

Please contact Dr. Kristine Williams at (913) 588-1673 or for more information about CHATO.
