Difficult Patients, Over Medication, And Group Think

Some patients, or patient interactions, are described as particularly difficult for caregivers - evoking feelings of repulsion, anger, or frustration. These patients are particularly susceptible to over medication because of the nature of these interactions. In this session, the presenter examines a case from a group home where the patient was unnecessarily over medicated. We then explore how to recognize and avoid these sorts of patient interactions and group dynamics.
