Project Description

This project aims to develop a computer model of service delivery and management of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) for the Australian population.

The model will be used to estimate changes in cost and prevalence at different levels of BPSD currently and in the future, taking into account population projections and possible effects of evidence-based interventions.

We propose to use the model to find answers to questions that are being routinely asked by clinicians, health managers and policy makers in the field of dementia.
