This program will raise the awareness of Parkinson’s induced Psychosis within the long-term arena. Many nursing home residents with Parkinson’s experience the symptoms of delusions and hallucinations which causes them to self-isolate, stop eating, and put themselves at risk with their safety. This training will prepare the post-acute staff to recognize these symptoms, tips in accurate and complete documentation and how to create an effective care plan. This presentation will provide information in a manner that can then be relayed to their staff such as symptom assessment, interventions and care planning.
The participant will be able to:
1. Describe 2 types of hallucinations or delusions that a Resident with Parkinson’s might experience.
2. List three things that need to be documented to prove a reduction in medication is not warranted.
3. Identify 3 interventions that should be included on the care plan.
