Wellness, The 1st Prescription” – 2 hours CEs NCCAP Pre-Approved
Program Description: Wellness…a concept that includes building upon individual strengths and reaching one’s potential. As the population of older adults has grown so has the knowledge and expectations of those we serve; especially those with functional decline, acute injury, chronic illness and geriatric syndromes. There is no magic pill and the side effects of medications can decrease one’s quality of life. Join me in this interactive session as we explore a wellness approach and why it should be “the first prescription” for non-pharmacological interventions.
- Participants will learn the concept of a wellness approach and be able to identify the six dimensions of wellness.
- Identify four areas where using a non-pharmacological approach would be beneficial
- Participants will explore and understand interventions to increase quality of life to those they serve
