Dementia Course (HDS-R)

INTRODUCTION TO THE HIERARCHIC DEMENTIA SCALE-REVISED (HDS-R) AND THE POSSIBILITY ORIENTED APPROACH TO CARE PLANNING – JACKIE REYNOLDS

 

The workshop is aimed at health professionals who care for people living with dementia, and contains a very brief introduction about dementia before centering on the HDS-R, what it is, how to use it and how to turn the outcomes into a meaningful care plan for someone with dementia. It is highly interactive and the participants will leave with copies of the PowerPoint and the Possibility Oriented Approach manual, plus some other resources.

Workshop objectives are:

  • Understand the underpinning theory of the HDS-R
  • Demonstrate ability to assess people with dementia using the HDS-R
  • Combine the results of HDS-R assessments with a Possibility Oriented Approach to provide person-centered interventions.
