Introduction to Assessment and Management of BPSD for the Novice Clinicians

This program is designed primarily as a self-directed learning program aimed at assisting novice health professionals to better understand the care required for a person experiencing behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD).

For the purposes of this program, a “novice” clinician is defined as a clinician from nursing or allied health disciplines in the first few years post graduation.

It is anticipated that this program of learning will assist a novice clinician newly appointed to a position, either in the community or a residential aged care facility, where they will care for people with BPSD perhaps for the first time.

To aid the learning experience, the pdf file has links to online videos.
