Title
Environment as intervention: Evidence-based strategies to address behaviour, perception, and falls in people with Alzheimer’s disease (November 13, 2018)
Description

ON-DEMAND WEBINAR PURCHASE (INDIVIDUAL)

People with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) exhibit challenging behaviors such as agitation, wandering, and hallucinations.  These behaviors, coupled with altered cognition, perception, and balance, can interfere with safe and meaningful occupational engagement, and be burdensome for caregivers.  As the environment can influence behavior, occupational therapy practitioners are uniquely poised to implement environment-based interventions in practice.  This webinar will present evidence-based environmental interventions within occupational therapy’s scope intended to address problematic behaviors, perception, and falls in adults with AD.  Case studies of people with varying severity of AD across practice settings will be used to illustrate practical applications of the research findings.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Describe evidence-based environmental interventions designed to address behavior, perception, and falls in clients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related disorders that support occupational performance and participation.
  2. Apply the evidence to create environmental interventions for clients in different stages of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders in a variety of practice settings including institutional and community.
