Today’s re-blog as part of World Alzheimer’s Day focuses on the campaign to ban the Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD).

“The campaign to Ban BPSD in no way advocates the complete removal of antipsychotics.

As with any other chronic terminal disease they do have a place but the campaign wants to see healthcare systems move from the medical model which on further reading you will see that it abuses the person with Dementia and ignores their human rights, to the social model that treats the causes.

The medical model treats the symptoms of BPSD usually by Chemical Restraint which leads to increase clusters of behaviours associated Dementia.”
