Dementia in primary care: Recognising and managing behavioural and psychological symptoms and physical comorbidities

Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) can lead to quality of life impacts in not only the individual with dementia, but also others around them. This module explores the assessment of BPSD using the ABC (antecedent, behaviour, consequence) model, and discusses the management of BPSD using pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods as well as the management of comorbid conditions associated with dementia.

Dementia in diverse groups - On-demand webinar

As in many therapeutic areas, cultural and linguistic diversity has an impact on the recognition, diagnosis and management of dementia -- but the ‘how’, ‘why’ and ‘what to do’ for people with dementia in diverse groups can be tricky to navigate in busy primary practice. This activity explores the different clinical presentations of dementia in diverse populations, as well as the social, family and other considerations relevant to people in cultural and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups.
