Staffing, Stress, and Surviving the Day-to-Day Challenges of a Pandemic
Date: Wednesday, May 20, 2020
Time: 3:00 p.m. ET
Duration: 1 hour
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, staffing shortages are commonplace due to healthcare providers (HCP) exposure, illness, or the need to care for family members at home. Healthcare facilities must be prepared for potential staffing shortages and have plans in place to mitigate these, including communicating with HCP about actions the facility is taking to address shortages and maintain patient and HCP safety.
Part of the mitigation plan should be to provide resources to assist HCP with anxiety and stress. This webinar will address resources available to help facilities mitigate staffing shortages and how we can take care of our HCP during this stressful time.
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.

Complicated Grief and Loss: Uncharted Territory With COVID-19
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.
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.
Protecting Mothers and Babies: COVID-19 and the Obstetric Patient
As COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, continues to spread rapidly across the United States, the dangers presented to one of the most vulnerable populations—mothers and newborns—must be swiftly addressed.
