Assisting those living with acquired brain injury (ABI) and their carers to best manage behaviours that create barriers to success.
This Service is for:
Brain Injury SA will be establishing a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) service in recognition of the significant positive impact that PBS can have on the lives of people with ABI and their families.
What is Positive Behaviour Support?
PBS is a person-centred framework for promoting a person’s quality of life and reducing the occurrence and impact of behaviours of concern. These behaviours can be defined as those that cause worry, stress, risk of or actual harm to the person, their family, carers, staff or those around them. PBS is about creating individualised strategies that are responsive to a person’s unique needs and help them to improve their lives. Minimising, and where possible eliminating, the use of restrictive practices is another core objective of PBS.
PBS plans are designed by PBS practitioners and outline the strategies that stakeholders are to employ to achieve these aims.
Brain Injury SA’s PBS service will be managed by an experienced PBS practitioner. We will have more news on the establishment of our PBS service soon.
For positions vacant in our PBS service, please see our Careers section on this website.
