In order to provide high-quality care and quality of life to residents living with dementia, CALA members have developed the Toolkit for Reducing Antipsychotic Use. This guide was created to help providers track the number of residents with dementia that have orders for antipsychotic medications. The toolkit provides sample worksheets to incorporate into daily operations, tips to help educate residents’ families and prescribers on the issue, and information from a variety of sources to help providers look for ways to promote non-pharmacological interventions.
