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 and 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.
This content is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels. It explains dementia and expands on the benefits and uses for each therapy.
