ALS, MS, MD, and More… Ways to Prepare in Advance
Date: Wednesday, July 29, 2020
Webinar time: 12:00PM – 1:00PM Central
1.0 CE for CEU credit for both nurses (AANAC) and administrators (NCERS/NAB)
What’s the difference in the care of the residents with seldom seen syndromes and diagnoses such as ALS, MS, MD, and others? What do you do when you’ve never cared for someone that has one of these syndromes?
ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) has gradual onset… MS (Multiple Sclerosis) symptoms are hard to predict and a person’s symptoms change over time and MD (Muscular Dystrophy) more prominent in children not the elderly.
So, what do we do when our residents present with issues related to seldom seen syndromes?
This webinar will address these seldom seen syndromes and make some sense of how we can best provide the appropriate care.

- What to expect from each of these syndromes and tips for care that will help minimize your resident’s discomfort?
