Researchers and nursing home leaders not involved in the study said the findings, while based on a small number of nursing homes, are encouraging. They noted, however, the nursing homes chosen in the study were not selected at random, raising the possibility the facilities that agreed to participate in the videoconferencing may have already been more committed to lowering antipsychotic use.
“Given the limitations, they were still able to find changes, and that’s very suggestive that we should look at this [approach] more,” said Becky Briesacher, an associate professor and health services researcher at Northeastern University.
