22 Nov 2017

This interactive workshop will 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 to reflect on themselves within the relationship with those they are supporting, and in the wider context of their workplace.

This workshop will:

  • Look at the needs of people with dementia exhibiting responsive behaviours
  • Review models of behaviour, with a focus on those used in the provision of dementia care
  • Describe the factors which contribute to behaviour, such as pain, medication, delirium and the physical and social environment.

Prerequisites for this workshop are that participants have:

  • An understanding of dementia, including common symptoms and different types
  • Awareness of principles of person-centred care and approaches to communication
  • Awareness of the range of responsive behaviours.
