Optimizing Individualized Care: Using all the Tools in our Collective Toolkits
December 3, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
An OADD On-line Educational Event
Presenters: Alison Cox, Autumn Kozluk
There are three common intervention approaches to treating challenging behaviour in persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), including: behavioural, psychopharmacological and combined interventions.
This presentation will discuss the clinical implications of an improved understanding of drug-behaviour mechanisms and describe existing literature on individualized evaluation systems. The focus will be to consider ways to improve evaluation strategies and better facilitate individualized models of care for individuals with IDD who engage in challenging behaviour and are taking psychotropic medication.
