Free Webinar: What you need to know about Behaviour Support Plans

Friday 15 October, 2021

Changes to legislation now require all aged care providers to have a behaviour support plan in place for each resident who receives support for changes in behaviour.

Behaviour Support Plans (BSP) help providers to better understand why a person in their care may experience changes in behaviour and support them with personalised plans that work.

In this free webinar, Dementia Training Australia has brought together experts in the field of dementia and behaviour support to discuss elements of good practice, programs and resources recently developed to assist aged care providers and staff.

Marie Alford, Head of Dementia Centre Services at The Dementia Centre, HammondCare, will outline a new online Behaviour Support Toolkit, created by Dementia Support Australia, to specifically to help providers understand BSPs and provide a guide to creating a good BSP.  

"We have created a dedicated toolkit with everything you need, all in one place, to help providers better support people in care. We know that a good BSP is a Better Supported Person,” says Marie. “Our experienced consultants have developed proven in practice tools and resources to give providers a roadmap to deliver BSPs to best support those in our care. We’re looking at ways to align our recommendation reports to BSP’s to provide further support to aged care providers so I’m looking forward to this webinar and hearing back from them on what they might need in future.”

Each tool has a specific role to help guide you develop a quality BSP
