Effect of "Breath of Fresh Air" Flash Activity on Dementia Agitation : Pilot Study

2019-09-24 05:27:32 | BioPortfolio


Non-drug therapies (NDT) constitute a strong axis of the person with dementia behaviour management. Among these NDT, the flash activities constitute a mode of intervention to prevent and control the expression of the most disruptive behavior. These are short-term activities with the objective of decreasing the behavioural disorders intensity in less than 15 minutes.

The aim of this pilot study is to test the effect of a flash activity "breath of fresh air" compared to the usual relational care on the short-term decrease (15 min.) of the agitation in hospitalized dementia patients.
