With the aging of our general population and patients living longer, dementia among some CKD patients is inevitable. Effectively recognizing the challenges and managing them before and during treatment is essential for the well-being of the patient, morale of the staff, and functioning of the clinic. This activity will provide the learner with strategies to manage behavioral expressions as well as how to utilize tools to improve communication between patients and caregivers.
