Assessing for Dementia      concern, affecting over 770,000 Veterans.
                            The incidence of dementia increases with
                            age, and most people affected are over
                            the age 60. It is one of the most costly
                            chronic conditions that VA treats, and its
                            financial impact is expected to grow with
                            the increasing number of aging Veterans.
                            Dementia is often overlooked or
                            unrecognized. Being aware of dementia
                            warning signs facilitates detection of
                            dementia symptoms and prompts further
                            comprehensive assessment. A
                            comprehensive assessment should include
                            a detailed history, physical exam,
                            laboratory tests and imaging. This module
                            will provide an overview of dementia

Plan of Care for the        The purpose of this knowledge-based          1 hour         1091116     8/13/2021
Older Adult                 training is to review components of
                            person-centered care planning for the
                            older adult. When developing a plan of
                            care, it is important to be aware of the
                            unique developmental and physical needs
                            of the patient as it refers to the aging
                            process, including any disease processes
                            occurring, such as dementias or other
                            diseases that can affect cognition. The
                            nurse must also be able to identify
                            expected outcomes and modify the plan
                            of care related to normal and abnormal
                            processes of aging. Having this knowledge
                            can positively impact the patient-
                            centered, team-delivered care that the VA
                            provides to Veterans.
