Description

Dr. Al Power, renowned geriatrician, speaks on the drawbacks of our current approaches to dementia (and the drugs) and introduces his alternative approach, with some examples of how it is applied and some anecdotal successes he has seen with other organizations. He will also present his latest work on setting up a process for antipsychotic review and gradual dose reduction that gives a prioritization list and dose reduction guidelines.

G. Allen Power, MD is a board certified internist and geriatrician, and newly named Schlegel Chair in Aging and Dementia Innovation at the Schlegel—U. Waterloo Research Institute for Aging in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Power’s second book, Dementia Beyond Disease: Enhancing Well-Being was released in June 2014 by Health Professions Press.

It was re-released in a second edition in October 2016.
