The Rabins Response to the Challenging Behaviors of Alzheimer’s Disease
This DVD presents an interactive workshop with long term care staff conducted by Peter V. Rabins addressing care of Alzheimer’s patient presenting challenging behaviors. Content includes discussion with nursing staff, staff interviews and actual patient – staff vignettes with Dr. Rabins.
In discussing patient cases, Rabins asks nursing staff to consider the following questions:
With information provided by the answers to these questions, Rabins helps care providers identify the triggers which have precipitated the behaviors. Once the triggers have been identified, together they develop strategies to both prevent these behaviors and minimize them if they should occur. Implementing this technique can transform seemingly difficult patients, minimizing upsetting situations both for the patient and staff.
Topics: Assessment, behavioral changes, refusal of care, agitation, person-centered care
