There are many people who develop behaviour support plans - their professional experience and training is quite diverse. This research will help us to gain a snapshot of the current field of practice, and practitioners; these will be particularly important given recent recommendations and requirements within residential aged care to implement behaviour support plans.
Respondents are required to be over the age of 18 and currently developing/writing individualised behaviour support interventions for people with disabilities (including cognitive impairment) in community and residential care settings in Australia. Participation involves completing an online survey, which is anonymous and voluntary, and is expected to take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Respondents will then be invited to go into a draw to win an Apple iPad as a thank you for their time.
