This course will teach participants a structured, team-based approach to problem-solve challenging behaviors in patients who have dementia and to advocate for excellent dementia care that helps patients and families enjoy the highest quality of life possible. This highly-interactive, skills-based course will allow participants to practice newly-learned communication skills and plan for implementation of the skills in daily clinical practice. All proceeds from this course will be donated to the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research as a part of the VCU-Marquette Challenge!
