Workshop 2018 | Reducing Disability in Alzheimer's Disease Program (RDAD) in Primary Care | September

Advanced practice nurse with a patient who has Alzheimer's Disease.

 

Now you can DO something for patients with dementia.

Many nurses and NPs think there's not much they can do for patients with dementia. But an innovative intervention developed at the University of Washington has been shown to successfully treat symptoms of dementia. Learn about this proven method at a free workshop offered by the Northwest Research Group on Aging. 

 

"Before this workshop, I wasn't sure what to tell my patients with dementia. Now, I have something to do that may offer hope to families."

"Training was great!"

"I loved the exercises and strategies to help with agitation behaviors." 

 

Do you see patients with dementia at your clinic?

If you're an advanced practice nurse or RN who sees patients with dementia or their caregivers, we need your feedback. The University of Washington School of Nursing is conducting a study to investigate a new educational program that integrates into primary care a proven intervention for patients with dementia and their caregivers. We need your input to ensure that this training is relevant and applicable to current practice. 

Please help us advance evidence-based interventions for people with dementia into primary care and other outpatient settings. Participants will earn 5 contact hours of continuing education in nursing for participation and completion of program activities. Teaching methods include lecture, manual and discussion. Registration is free. Refreshments will be provided.
