Abstract: Living with chronic illness or disability affects not only patients, but their families, friends, co-workers, and the communities in which they live.  Thanks to advances in diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation, children, adolescents, and adults are living with illnesses and the effects of injuries that, not so long ago, would have resulted in death.  These same advances are increasing the average life span of men and women.  This means that the number of people living with chronic conditions is increasing rapidly.  The purpose of this continuing education course is to discuss the adjustment process to chronic illness and injuries, review age-specific characteristics and their impact on the adjustment process, and identify nursing interventions to help patients achieve maximum levels of wellness.

Abstract: It is estimated that about 5.7 million adult Americans age 18 or older are affected by bipolar disorder in any given year.6,7  But how many health care professionals really understand what bipolar disorder is and how to facilitate treatment?  Health care advances are occurring at breakneck speed, and professionals are struggling to keep abreast of changes in their various specialties.  Other than mental health specialists, health care workers may not have studied bipolar disorder since their initial education and training, if at all.  They may never have provided care to someone who has bipolar disorder.  The purpose of this educational program is to describe the etiology and presenting symptoms of the disorder, how a diagnosis is made, treatment modalities, and considerations when providing client care in health care settings other than mental health.

Abstract: Dementia is a syndrome of the loss of intellectual functions, such as thinking, remembering and reasoning.  Non-pharmacological, restraint-free methods for managing behaviors such as restlessness, wandering, agitation, verbal and physical aggression, and sexually inappropriate behavior will be explored.  Case scenarios of difficult behaviors often seen in people with dementia are presented, with suggestions to deal with the behaviors.
 
Three basic management strategies to prevent disruptive behavior in people with dementia are also presented, along with discussion on assessment and communication techniques for dealing with such behavioral problems.  The losses and difficulties faced by caregivers of people with dementia are identified, along with suggestions on avoiding such issues.  Preventing these behaviors with non-pharmacological methods can help the person’s quality of life, keep them out of an institution for a longer period, and decrease caregiver stress.
