The Age of Dementia

Summary

The Center for Lifelong Learning at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing understands that caring for patients with dementia can be challenging, frustrating and isolating. For this reason, and after excellent feedback from last year's program, we are once again offering a continuing education day focused solely on dementia care.

Chances are that, no matter what the healthcare setting, every professional caregiver will have to address the needs of a patient with dementia at some point in their career. Dementia is not just a diagnosis for older adults, and many different types of dementia exist. In this program, participants will learn more about the pathophysiology of each type of dementia, with a special focus on HIV-associated dementia; the basic care needs of patients with dementia; and the mental health concerns of a patient with dementia are key strategies for high quality dementia care. In addition, key strategies for high quality dementia care throughout the continuum will be addressed so that participants are armed with evidence-based tools that lead to positive outcomes for both the caregiver and patient.

We invite health care professionals along the entire spectrum of disciplines and academic achievements, as well as lay caregivers of patients with dementia, to an interactive day at our program, The Age of Dementia, on April 19, 2018, for a full day of learning and networking. Register today before this very popular and highly desired course is full!

Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.
