About the workshop:
This interactive workshop is designed to assist health professionals to maximise quality of life for people living with dementia by taking a comprehensive and holistic view of behaviour. The workshop is guided by three principal themes to assist practitioners to recognise the person’s story and strengths, and reflect on themselves within the relationship and in the wider context of their workplace.
- Understand models of behaviour and be able to use concept mapping;
- Clarify and investigate factors which contribute to behaviour, such as pain, medication, delirium and the social environment;
- Increase capacity to implement person centred approaches to caring for people with dementia.
