Montessori Based Activity Programming (MBAP) Workshop

The Montessori Based Activity Programming (MBAP) model at the centre of this workshop is an evidence-based non-pharmacological intervention for developing person-centred, effective, individualised activities with people with dementia.

The 1-day MBAP Workshop is delivered by a senior registered nurse who has completed extensive training with Dr Cameron Camp, the psychologist who devised the MBAP model, in addition to her own clinical and academic training, and has extensive experience of training, mentoring and supporting healthcare professionals and caregivers in the use of person centred care philosophy and approaches.
