Click Track: Dementia Management in the Acute Care Setting

Attend A Map Through the Maze to learn the latest on newly released care standards from the Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Acute Care Advisory Committee and how they will impact your work and patient care.

The top three priorities for all Massachusetts hospitals serving adult populations:

 

  1. Develop an operational plan within the next three years to identify dementia and/or delirium in the emergency department and inpatient setting, and create a specialized care plan in the event dementia and/or delirium is detected.
  2. Create a process that includes caregivers in the care planning and discharge planning of individuals with dementia.
  3. Implement Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI) measures and outline routine training for clinical and relevant non-clinical staff.
