Distressing and harmful resident-to-resident interactions in dementia in long-term care homes is a prevalent, concerning, but under-recognized public health problem.

Based on an extensive review of practice and research literature and an observational study conducted by Dr. Caspi, this introductory presentation will identify:

  1. Consequences of these behavioral expressions;
  2. Common contributing factors, causes, and situational triggers;
  3. Key psychosocial prevention and de-escalation strategies.

In addition, documentation, measurement, assessment, screening, and individualized care planning tools will be mentioned briefly. Several case examples will be used for illustration throughout the presentation.
