Abstract: 

The didactic lecture remains a primary method of instruction in medical education, particularly for large class sizes. Capturing and maintaining the attention of students are some of the characteristics of an effective lecture. An excellent opening summary is critical to the success of the lecture and encourages students to focus with anticipation and mental alertness. The Iowa Geriatric Education Center has developed movie trailers on dementia, depression, delirium, and falls that can serve as excellent opening summaries to help capture the learners' attention. These one to two minute summaries have been used effectively to introduce didactic lecture topics as well as in interactive workshops.

Educational objectives: 

 Two to three minute videos utilized to provide preliminary overview of topics to capture the learners' attention.

Abstract: 

This website includes information and resources to help clinicians, providers, and consumers better understand how to manage problem behaviors and psychosis in people with dementia using evidence-based approaches. This includes brief lectures, written content, quick reference guides for clinicians and providers, and information for families or patients on the risks and benefits of antipsychotics for people with dementia (a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease and others). You can also request laminated quick reference guides to use in your practice, which can help you put the strategies you learn about into action.

Educational objectives: 
On completion, the learner will be able to:
  1. List appropriate initial assessments to help determine the causes of problem behaviors or psychosis in dementia.
  2. Apply non-drug strategies to manage problem behaviors or psychosis in dementia.
  3. Assess delirium signs and symptoms using a delirium screening tool.
  4. Determine when an antipsychotic might be appropriate or inappropriate in a person with dementia, depending on symptoms and the type of dementia.
  5. Select an optimal antipsychotic for a patient with dementia based on efficacy, side effects, and patient comorbidities.
  6. Recognize antipsychotic side effects in a person with dementia.
  7. Discuss the risks and benefits of antipsychotics with patients and families using a shared decision making information sheet as a guide.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This program is supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (R18 HS19355-01).

The quick reference guides were reviewed by healthcare practitioners and direct care providers during development. The family guide was reviewed by the New Readers of Iowa and Alzheimer's Association support group participants.
