New Antipsychotic Webinars Now Available (And Catch Up on Older Ones)

Want to learn how consistent staff assignments can help reduce the use of antipsychotic medications in residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related conditions? Then listen to Barbara Frank’s 3-part webinar, which is hosted on the Quality Monitoring Program website.

The 3 sessions are:

  • Why Consistent Assignment is Essential to Eliminate Off-Label Antipsychotics
  • Engaging Staff and Systems
  • Maximizing and Sustaining Consistent Assignment

Barbara Frank is co-founder of B&F Consulting, which helps nursing homes be better places to live and work. She has extensive experience working directly with nursing homes to stabilize and engage staff, and to individualize and improve care. She is also the co-author of the book Meeting the Leadership Challenge in Long-Term Care: What You Do Matters.
