Abstract

A caregiver training protocol for Alzheimer's disease and related disorders (ADRD) is presented for dementia management based on the progressively lowered stress threshold model. The training protocol is described using criteria for a nursing intervention including: (a) characteristics of the nursing diagnosis, (b) research base for the intervention, (c) desired patient outcomes, (d) acceptability to the patient, (e) capability of the nurse, and (f) feasibility for doing the intervention. A national study is described which is currently underway to further evaluate the effects of the training protocol.
