Earlier this month I blogged about attending the wonderful Alzheimer’s Disease International 2015 conference in Perth, Western Australia.
As I said in my post, a few of my colleagues and myself started a significant debate by challenging the concept of“BPSD” (Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia).
Below is a link to the full video of my plenary talk. In addition to my “BPSD” comments, there are several other provocative challenges to the dominant paradigm laced throughout the talk.
Let me know what you think.
(The people I reference in my comments whose presentations preceded mine are Daniella Greenwood, Strategy and Innovations Manager for Arcare Australia, and Helga Rohra from Munich, Germany, a former professional translator who lives with Lewy body dementia.)
