Utilizing validation, therapeutic fibbing and other strategies in dementia care

09/28/2021 to 09/28/2021

Online, Rockville, MD 20850

Ethical treatment of persons with dementia in a health or mental health setting is essential but can be challenging due to patients’ fluctuating ability to give consent and understand others. Validation, therapeutic fibbing, reality orientation and redirection are some of the most common ways to communicate and interact with those who have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of irreversible dementia. This thought-provoking seminar will examine when these different strategies are most appropriately and ethically applied so patient self-determination and safety are ensured.
