Person-Centered Care for Residents with Dementia Exhibiting Aggressive Behavior

The U. S. Department of Health & Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality aims to advance excellence in health care through the promotion of research and dissemination of best practice information. One of the ways they achieve these goals is the Innovations Exchange, a formal online forum  where researchers and clinicians can exchange knowledge about tools and innovations that are improving quality and reducing disparities in health care.
One of the series in the Innovations Exchange is the Service Delivery Innovation Profile, where facilities can profile their services and models of service in a detailed way providing information such as what problems were addressed to specific staffing needs to address these problems.
The Service Delivery Innovation Profile featured here is entitled, “Person-Centered Care for Residents with Dementia Exhibiting Aggressive Behavior Reduces Psychiatric Hospitalizations and Behavior-Related Medications.”
