Behaviour

Understanding Behaviour: A Clinician's Perspective

#Family Carer

We chat with A/Prof Steve MacFarlane about the clinical and pharmacological considerations in the treatment of those who are experiencing behaviours and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD).

A/Prof MacFarlane is the head of Clinical Services at The Dementia Centre.

Through a balanced discussion, we explore the benefits of non-pharmacological approaches to care compared to anti-psychotic medication, appropriate medication use, the importance of person-centred care, and the Dementia Support Australia program.
