  • Two podcasts (Dementia and Changed Behaviours: A Person-Centred Approach and A Lived Experience ff Dementia and Changed Behaviours).
  • Several online articles.
  • A resource directory, and
  • A tool to facilitate multidisciplinary review of antipsychotic medicines prescribed for people with dementia experiencing changed behaviour (‘Reviewing and tapering antipsychotic medicines for changed behaviour’).
