PTSD, Substance Abuse & Dementia Webinar

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

As health care professionals navigate the world of dementia, looking for ways to provide person-centered care, they must look at other things that can cause changes in behaviors. Various mental health illnesses can cause serious issues in the healthcare setting

This session will address the conditions of both PTSD and substance abuse, how the brain’s reward system works, and as care givers, what we can do to safely and effectively care for those diagnosed with dementia.

Presented by Chris Petrik, RN, BS, Dementia Reality Master Trainer, Director of Education, Elderwerks Educational Services
