SADMANs Sick Day Management Webinar
September 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
SafeCare BC is proud to partner with Medical Pharmacies Group to bring you the SADMANs Sick Day Management webinar.
COVID-19 has created unique challenges for older adults. When residents are sick – with COVID or other illness, they can’t continue the same medication regimens. Acute infectious diseases can cause dehydration and volume depletion, which increases health risks and adverse effects of certain medications, leading to a high mortality rate. It is for this reason that some medications should be stopped temporarily for residents. Medical Pharmacies brings to you SADMANs – an abbreviation and guidance on halting medications to prevent complications. Through this very timely session, attendees will understand the reasons certain medications should be halted when a resident is sick, which medications should be halted, and the important processes to ensure optimal health outcomes. This session will provide value for anyone who cares for or is indirectly responsible for continuing care residents.
This webinar will be 45 minutes long, followed by a 15 minute Q & A session.
