Brief description Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) affect approximate 90% of persons with dementia. BPSD include depression, aggression and psychosis and have negative effects on persons with dementia and carers. Management of BPSD is costly. This project will update and enhance our theoretical model of service delivery for BPSD by turning it into a computer-based model to assist health managers and policy makers. This model will incorporate the projected increase in prevalence of dementia and project associated costs of care into the future. It will also incorporate information about interventions for BPSD, and how they may affect prevalence and cost in the future.
