This course explores post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dementia and the increased likelihood of an older returned service person developing dementia. The triggers and behaviours associated with a person who has PTSD are explored as well
as the appropriate management of these behaviours as an expression of their unmet needs.
After viewing this course, participants should be able to:
– Explain what PTSD and dementia are
– Describe the symptoms someone might experience if they have PTSD
– Demonstrate how to identify and support a person’s behaviour effectively if they have PTSD and dementia
