For patients with cognitive impairment and their caregivers, barriers can be further complicated by literacy issues. It’s up to us, as healthcare professionals, to identify these issues and adjust our methods to ensure that each and every patient gets the very best care.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to approach lower literacy issues among your patients. You’ll also discover tools for managing challenging behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

After attending, you’ll be able to:

  • List two barriers experienced by many people with lower literacy levels.
  • Explain two ways to improve agency’s written materials.
  • Describe how the IDEA! Tool can be used to improve management of behavioral symptoms for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease.
