Abstract

1. Agitation in patients with Alzheimer's disease is a pervasive problem. The behaviors associated with agitation may have detrimental effects on the patient, health care providers, and other patients. 2. Management of these behaviors is particularly challenging and, at times, frustrating for nursing personnel. 3. Attempts to identify the causative factors are essential to the development of an individualized plan of care.
