The BPSD Series

Addressing behaviours and psychological symptoms of dementia

Why a BPSD program?

Becoming reliant on care from others is a huge adjustment for anyone. It is even more so for someone living with dementia. When consideration is given for the psychosocial influences of an associated behaviour, the result may not only be in identifying a cause but also identifying interventions that alleviate distress and provide more tailored support. An holistic, individual and flexible care approach has thus been recognised to make a difference in enhancing the quality of life for a person with dementia.

The BPSD Series provides participants with the opportunity to understand the importance of a psychosocial approach to dementia care and to develop and hone their skills in the following subjects:

  • Talking about dementia: language around BPSD
  • Advocacy for an holistic approach
  • Palliative and end-of-life care
  • Formulating interventions
  • Causes of changed behaviour
  • Holistic assessment
  • Supporting staff: implementing interventions.¬†

Customisable to your needs and professional development

Participants will be able to choose between interactive face-to-face workshops or lecture-style webinars. Each module can be undertaken as an individual unit or combined with others to form a tailored learning experience.
