Improving Antipsychotic Appropriateness in Dementia Patients

This website includes information and resources to help clinicians, providers, and consumers better understand how to manage problem behaviors and psychosis in people with dementia using evidence-based approaches. This includes brief lectures, written content, quick reference guides for clinicians and providers, and information for families or patients on the risks and benefits of antipsychotics for people with dementia (a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease and others). You can request laminated quick reference guides to use in your practice, which can help you put the strategies you learn about into action. This program is supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (R18 HS19355-01).

We hope that this program and the information provided through the website and quick reference guides will help you provide the best possible care for your patients or loved ones with dementia.
