Introduction to the HDS-R and the Possibility Oriented Approach to care planning

The Hierarchic Dementia Scale - Revised (HDS-R) is a reliable, validated assessment tool that assesses 20 different cognitive dimensions to determine remaining abilities of a person with cognitive impairment. Combined with the Possibility Oriented Approach to care planning, it provides a unique person-centred approach to supporting the person living with dementia.

This interactive workshop commences with a brief introduction to dementia and then focuses on the HDS-R, what it is, how to use it, and in combination with the Possibility Oriented Approach, how to create a meaningful care plan for someone living with dementia.

* Cost-free. This event is funded by the Australian Government.

  • Understand the underpinning theory of the HDS-R
  • Demonstrate ability to conduct an assessment of a person with dementia using the HDS-R
  • Combine the results of HDS-R assessments with a Possibility Oriented Approach to provide person-centred interventions
