The narrative of dementia is changing. Change with it.

    Improve your understanding and support for people experiencing behaviours and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) with the BPSD Textbook, launching on 8 September at the International Dementia Conference: Brave New World.

    Edited by leaders in their fields, Associate Professor Colm Cunningham, psychogeriatrician Associate Professor Stephen Macfarlane and geriatrician and aged care specialist Dr Madeleine Healy, the BPSD Textbook draws on the latest dementia research and the extensive practice experience of The Dementia Centre at HammondCare.

    With a holistic, relationship-based approach to supporting people experiencing BPSD and emphasis on non-pharmacological interventions, the book is essential reading for aged and health care professionals working with people living with BPSD.

    Delegates at the International Dementia Conference will hear from A/Profs Colm Cunningham and Steve Macfarlane at the plenary session When behaviour changes our terra firma: What has the Australian experience taught us? at 11.50 on 8 September and can continue the conversation and purchase a signed copy at the HammondCare Bookshop on level 4 at lunchtime.
