Care professionals experiences, support and use of a qualityregister within dementiacare- : at Behavioural and Psychological Symtoms of Dementia (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Persons with dementia diseases are today a large group that will increase significantly over the next few years. Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) are very common and can cause major suffering. For dementia care professionals, persons with dementia suffering from BPSD may induce stress in the caregiving situation. With proper training and support, this stress may be reduced. In the BPSD register, the dementia care professionals may get information, advice and help suggesting non-pharmacological interventions that can help the person with dementia. Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate caregivers opportunities and experiences in implementing BPSD registration and follow up of non-pharmacological interventions in the caregiving situation within residential care for dementia. Furthermore, the aim was to compare if the dementia caregivers experience had significance for the experienced value of BPSD registration in Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia. Method: A quantitative survey was conducted on residential care for dementia, N=5. The study- specific questionnaire covered possibility for BPSD- registration and interventions, considered value of BPSD estimation, and if non-pharmacological interventions are performed followed up, and considered to reduce BPSD. The results are presented using tables and diagrams. Kruskal Wallis test was used to compare variables between subgroups with varying working experience. Result: Most dementia caregivers considered that they had possibility to conduct BPSD registration 50% (n=28). They expressed 88% (n=49) that the non-pharmacological interventions that were initiated and performed decreased BPSD. Further they experienced BPSD follows up being important, 100% (n=56). There were no statistically significant differences between number of professional years and the compared variables (p-values ranged 0,266-0,981). Conclusion:The study found that dementia care professionals considered having possibilities to perform BPSD estimation, non-pharmacological interventions and follow- up. BPSD registration was experienced to be a helping tool for the dementia providers; and the length of the working experience had no significant relation to how they graded the value of the BPSD estimation.
