On Thursday, Nov. 10, at 6:30 p.m., registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and masters of social work can earn continuing education credit/1.5 contact hours through the Morning Pointe Foundation’s webinar, “Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Caregiving.”
David Hutchings, Ph.D., will present this latest in the Foundation’s Caregiver Café series.
The session is free to caregivers around the world but available for 1.5 contact hours to professionals through a partnership with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, at a cost of $25. Following the presentation, RNs, LPNs and MSWs will take a brief survey to earn the credit.
Hutchings is a geriatric neuropathology and dementia specialist. The seminar will touch on types of dementia and the difference between them, as well as genetic risks, treatment, stages of dementia and managing advanced symptoms. Live attendees will also have a chance to ask questions at the end of the session.
“I have a strong passion for these patients,” said Hutchings. “This is what I do every day, and I feel like we can make a difference with these patients. It’s really critical for those who are around these patients every day, to have a very detailed knowledge of the disease and the different types and stages.”
