SBRTs help aged care providers who care for people with severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia in Australian government-funded residential aged care settings or multiple-purpose services. SBRTs work where there is a heightened risk to the person living with dementia, or their care network.
SBRTs are a mobile workforce of clinical experts, including nurse practitioners, nurses, allied health staff and specialists.
Dementia Support Australia is the national provider of SBRTs. Key services that SBRTs provide are outlined here.
