Dementia‐related Responsive Behaviours: Putting it All Together Using P.I.E.C.E.S. and the BC BPSD Algorithm

Physicians who care for patients with dementia in residential or community settings are invited to a free workshop to learn about P.I.E.C.E.S. TM – a care model for those who have the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) which is being introduced into all care homes in BC – and participate in an important conversation about priorities and opportunities for quality improvement work in residential care.

The workshop supported through our CLeAR initiative – the Call for Less Antipsychotics for Residential Care that has supported 85 care homes across British Columbia to reduce antipsychotic use through evidence-based management of the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia.
