Optimizing Individualized Care: Using all the Tools in our Collective Toolkits

When: December 3rd, 2020 at 1:30 pm until 2:30 pm
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.
