September 11, 2019
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

1 CE for NHA, Nurses

Patients express their wants and needs in various ways. It is crucial that all staff effectively communicate with residents, this includes understanding each resident?s method of communication. This presentation will highlight the importance of effective communication techniques. A person centered approach that explores each resident?s body language, non-verbal cues, modulation, behaviors, and other forms of communication will be explored. Actual case studies will showcase how interventions discovered and implemented by therapists offer successful solutions.

1. Identify reasons that a therapy referral can be made for therapy interventions related to effective communication.
2. Identify quality measures affected by decreased communication
3. Be exposed to actual case studies with successful intervention techniques
