“Making the Connection” Was A Great Success

“Making the Connection” Was A Great Success

February’s 2013 winter workshop, “Making the Connection” featured Joanne Rader, RN, MN, PMHNP and Karen Stobbe, Entertainer and author.  The workshop focused on the need for a shift in care for individuals with dementia and introduced the use of an “Experimental Model” that puts less emphasis on drugs and applies a person-centered approach to care.  The participants learned how to implement the approach into every day practice.

“Excellent workshop – Thank you for all your hard work.  You really make a difference.”

“Both speakers were great – awesome job!  Wish all our staff could have been here and that this is offered again soon.”

Mark your calendars for February 2014 for featured speaker, Teepa Snow – from Accepting the Challenge.  Presented in Anchorage on February 3, Fairbanks, February 4 and Sitka on February 6.

A special thank you to our generous sponsor and training partner, Trust Training Cooperative.  Be sure to visit their site at www.trusttrainingcoop.org for offered trainings around the State.
