Product Description

LTC providers: Learn secrets you never knew about managing mood and behavior.

Many patients in long term care have some sort of mood or behavior issue due to a mental or physical problem -- is your facility addressing these problems in the best way possible? If surveyors beat you to the draw and identify mood indicators that aren’t on the MDS, you’re in the red zone for an F-323 tag, especially if unmanaged behaviors have led to violence, falls or worse. From behaviors as serious as screaming and hitting to more passive ones, such as withdrawal, you need a good system to nail down the root cause and then help foster a positive change.

Learn how to do just that with expert speaker Reta Underwood, ADC. During this 1-hour teleconference, she’ll offer inside tips on pinpointing and managing all kinds of behavior and mood issues. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of the regulations and have a mood and behavior management system outline you can implement right away.
