How cognitive impairment can cause anxiety, fear and challenging behaviour during daily moving and handling tasks

Showcase Theatre

A person with dementia, brain damage or cognitive impairment can find it difficult to process sensory information which can lead challenging behaviour. This can be minimised with an appropriate neuropsychological approach and well planned transfer

Besides a theoretical introduction you will have a practical introduction to Etac Patient Handling solutions and technical aids which can help minimise or avoid a stressful situation. We will show how to take advantage of the natural movement and how to increase the level of the calming hormone Oxytocin.
