Time: 2:00 p.m. ET

This pandemic is unlike anything we have ever witnessed. Patients who are seriously ill with COVID-19 are physically separated from their families due to risk of viral spread. Patients are dying alone, and families are having to say goodbye to their loved ones over cell-phones and iPads. Healthcare professionals are struggling with moral distress, compassion fatigue, and burnout from limited equipment and protective gear, cumulative losses, and heavy workloads. This webinar will discuss the difficult loss experiences patients, families and healthcare workers are facing and strategies to deal with the associated grief.

Identifying Signs of Depression and Anxiety in People Living With Dementia

Date: Thursday, May 28, 2020

Time: 3:00 p.m. ET

Duration: 1 hour

The brains of people living with dementia are very vulnerable to chemical changes and psychological conditions. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused extreme changes in day-to-day routines, and those who are living with dementia may or may not be able to fully comprehend the reasoning behind all the changes. Individuals living with dementia are therefore at a greatly increased risk for depression and anxiety due to isolation and changes in daily routine they have been experiencing. Recognizing changes that may signal symptoms of a mood or emotional disorder is vital in providing the best possible care and responding effectively. During this session Teepa Snow will help providers recognize and respond more accurately to depression and anxiety to reduce the chances for escalation and ‘non-helpful’ hospitalizations.

Teepa Snow: Living With Dementia During the COVID-19 Pandemic

This webinar focuses on dementia and care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of maintaining a six-foot social distancing boundary among people living with dementia (PLwD) housed in a setting designed for congregate living and social integration is simply not logical, reasonable, or achievable. To support both the health care providers choosing to provide care and the individuals who are housed in these settings, something different is needed. This webinar highlights different, person-centered working practices and routines to optimize the well-being of all involved, given the impossibility of following isolation guidelines without causing potentially irreparable harm to individuals and their relationship with those providing the only human contact they will be receiving in this situation.

Maximizing Your LMS During Staffing Emergencies

Staffing emergencies are a challenging and stressful time for healthcare organizations. Leaders have to make tough decisions on the best way to use valuable human resources. Oftentimes, we fail to consider the benefits and efficiencies our non-human resources, such as an LMS, can provide. From training plans to competency checks to virtual classrooms, use your LMS to ensure your staff have the needed skills, training, and education to continue to provide quality patient care while reducing their time away from patients.
