How Pain Affects Mood and Behaviour
Pain and Dementia education
Do you look after people living with dementia who can display behaviours such as aggression when you are providing care?
Are you sometimes reluctant to provide care because you are scared of getting hurt?
Did you know that pain is one of the most common symptoms that people with dementia experience?
Understanding how a person with dementia may communicate that they have pain can help you feel confident and safe in providing the care they need.
Join us to learn how you can better identify pain in people living with dementia so that you can address pain concerns, minimise responsive behaviours and have positive interactions.
You will receive a copy of the presentation and a certificate of attendance.
