treatment of neurocognitive disorders

Neurocognitive disorders (NCD) such as delirium, dementia, and amnestic
disorders are more prevalent in older adults. As the population ages and as
life expectancy in the United States continues to increase, the incidence
of these disorders will continue to increase. Cognitive functioning such as
memory, language, orientation, judgment, and problem solving are affected
in clients with NCDs. Caring for someone with a neurocognitive disorder is
not only challenging for the clinician, but also stressful for the family.
The PMHNP needs to consider not only the client but also the “family as
client.” Collaboration with primary care providers and specialty providers
is essential. Anticipatory guidance also becomes extremely important.

In this Discussion, you will integrate several sources of knowledge
specific to NCDs as you discuss evidenced-based therapies used to treat
these disorders.
