Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) has published the Behavioural Education and Training Supports Inventory (BETSI) Decision Making Framework, an education/training decision making tool and program inventory “must have!”, for anyone interested in providing safe, quality patient-centered care for older adults with responsive behaviours.
A compliment to BSO's Capacity Building Roadmap, BETSI assists providers, agencies and facilities to by strengthening the capacity of planners to choose the most appropriate of education programs and effectively support the application of new knowledge into practice; enabling teams to provide clients with the right care, at the right time and in the right place.
The BSO Capacity Building Roadmap and BETSI Framework should be used by those who need to make decisions about what education is required to manage and better serve the target population, and also by those who provide collaborative care for the target population and make education-related decisions… including but not limited to Directors of Care, Psychogeriatric Resource Consultants, Educators, Capacity Building Leads, Joint Health & Safety Committees etc.
