Project Title: Novel assessment tool to measure behavioural symptoms of dementia
This project’s main objective is to validate the Baycrest Behavioural Assessment System (BBAS) tool for identifying and tracking responsive behaviours, such that it can be used reliably for dementia care and research, and be shared with the wider community. BBAS has the potential to reduce point-of-care workload and provide evidence-based data to facilitate treatment interventions as it allows rapid, accurate, and timely adjustments that optimize care.
