DEMENTIA AND ANTIPSYCHOTICS IN THE LONG TERM CARE SETTING: A QUALITY IMPROVEMENT INITIATIVE

Vanderbilt Center for Quality Aging partnered with atom Alliance, a quality improvement agency, to present a series of web-based trainings for skilled nursing facilities to reduce usage of antipsychotic drugs. The six part series took place from October 2015 to March 2016; however, sessions can still be viewed through Atom Alliance's Learning On Demand website.

For more information about the series or presenters, contact Emily Hollingsworth at emily.k.hollingsworth@vanderbilt.edu or 615-936-2718.
