Dementia

 

Approximately one quarter of all hospitalized patients over age 75 years have a secondary diagnosis of dementia. A unique hospital-wide

program to encourage appropriate communication techniques with patients who have dementia was provided to all departments of a

hospital. Evaluation indicated improvement in some communication techniques. Additional education is needed to disperse the information

to as many staff as possible and to sustain the change.

Instructions:

Read the article Pilot testing an educational intervention to improve communication with patients with dementia.
Answer the following questions:
What kind of communication technique are the authors suggesting for dementia patients?
What technique seems the most promising to you?
Explain why you picked that technique?
