The Handbook is intended to provide a specific and targeted resource for all relevant NSW health staff regarding the management of BPSD. The Handbook will focus on the needs of clinical staff in community and inpatient settings that have a key role in the management of older people with BPSD. The Handbook draws on current guidelines and relevant literature and is also intended to promote a collaborative approach between mental health and aged care staff, consistent with the NSW Service Plan for Specialist Mental Health Services for Older People (SMHSOP) 2005-2015.
