Clinical Guidelines - Launching in 2024

The CCSMH is developing new guidelines on the Assessment and Management of Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD). The guidelines will provide people living with dementia, caregivers, and health care professionals with evidence-based recommendations and resources for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of BPSD.

The Coalition is bringing together people with lived experience, researchers and health care providers to identify best practices to prevent and treat behavioural and psychological changes in dementia and develop guidelines, resources and tools that can be shared across Canada.
