Dementia Beyond Drugs : Changing the Culture of Care
by G. Allen Power




Overview -
Years before the federal government started setting goals to reduce the use of psychotropic drugs in long-term care settings, Dr. Al Power argued eloquently in his trailblazing book Dementia Beyond Drugs about the harm done by these medications in the symptomatic treatment of dementia. This revised second edition introduces new research, language, and examples to reinforce the core message that antipsychotic medications are not the solution to ease the distress experienced by individuals living with dementia, and presents alternative solutions for providing respectful, individualized support and care. Unique features in the book include: * Discussion of new drug studies and government reports on the dangers and ineffectiveness of antipsychotic medications in the dementia population * Innovative practices in dementia care * A pathway to meet--and exceed--the drug-reduction goals established by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
