Medication Management of Dementia
Live webinar: 26th March 2022 (Saturday), 3pm – 4:30pm
Current medications can’t cure Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. However, they might be able to slow down the progression or make it easier to live with. They may relieve the symptoms related to memory loss, language and other cognitive impairments. Besides that, they may also help to improve the mood and reduce the agitation or other behavioral issues. Every individual responds to dementia medication differently. It is important for everyone who takes or serves medication to understand its purpose and proper usage.
By the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:
· Recognize the uses, limitations and adverse effects of available medication for dementia.
· Identify the challenges in giving medication to people living with dementia.
· Understand the roles of family caregivers and private caregivers in medication safety management.
Participants will receive an e-certificate of attendance and one CPD point upon completion of the webinar.
