Three cases will be presented, and an update and review of the associated topics will be followed by group discussion. The first case will discuss an admission of a resident with a primary chronic and severe psychiatric diagnosis, e.g. Schizophrenia. The second case will be one of dementia with neuropsychiatric symptoms. Finally, a resident with a complicated mixture of depression and anxiety will be presented. The session will introduce MDS 3.0 as it relates to psychiatric diagnoses.

Learning Objectives(s):

  • Describe how the changes between MDS 2.0 and 3.0 foster the use of standardized instruments to quantify psychiatric symptomatology, which can prove helpful in making treatment decisions.
  • Discuss which circumstances should prompt you to ask for psychiatric consultation when managing a resident in long term care with a psychiatric illness.
  • Review the evidence base for both nonpharmacological and pharmacological management of dementia with neuropsychiatric symptoms.
  • Demonstrate comfort in recognition and management of overlap syndromes between depression and anxiety.
