“[I gained a] greater understanding of the unique impact psychiatric conditions have on assessment and treatment of older adults.” (Registered Nurse)  

"I work in a rural practice with little specialist coverage and access to mental health counselling, support programs etc. This helped me become more confident in assessing and managing my elderly psychiatry patients. Often they don't have the capability to travel long distances to see a specialist.” (Registered Nurse)

“[I am] more confident to do counselling with families regarding the prognosis and the progression of dementia.” (Challenging Behaviour Resource Consultant - Nurse)

“It provided me with up to date research and information on assessment and treatment of older adults.  Given I do not have a medical background, and I am working in a medically focused field, it enhanced my confidence to better support the client's I work with. I feel it also improved my assessments to better reflect reliant and helpful information for our teams' geriatric psychiatrist to review.”   (Psychiatric Nurse)
