This course focuses on how to provide care for individuals experiencing brain changes who are unwilling to accept help or support. Specifically, we will explore the difference between denial and anosognosia, where the latter refers to a lack of awareness of one's own deficits. Through case studies and real-life scenarios, we will examine strategies for supporting individuals in need of supervision or assistance without causing confrontation. The course will emphasize a non-confrontational approach to caregiving and provide practical tips and tools for how to navigate situations where an individual is resistant to care. Participants will learn how to communicate effectively with someone who may not understand their own limitations and how to provide support in a way that preserves their dignity and autonomy. This course is designed for healthcare professionals who work with individuals experiencing brain changes and want to improve their skills in providing non-confrontational care.

Pharmacological treatment is indicated to address specific diseases and quality of life, as well as and extend life but can subsequently result in multiple medications being prescribed in patients with complex chronic health conditions and advanced age. The use of multiple medications referred to as polypharmacy is linked to drug therapy-related issues such as drug interactions, non-adherence, or adverse effects like drug toxicity, falls with injury, or delirium. These issues compound leading to higher costs of care for the patient and the health care system. The goal of this presentation is to review polypharmacy-related issues in the long-term care facilities, identify opportunities for deprescribing and treatment optimization as it relates to certain drugs or drug classes, discuss how to engage LTC staff in deprescribing efforts, and review existing deprescribing resources available to the long-term care facilities.
