Connect Behaviours is a framework to help guide effective care planning for those people whose behaviour can be challenging for others to understand and support. The framework is based on best practice guidance relating to challenging behaviour and positive behaviour support and covers 7 domains:
The framework guides the rating of each domain according to how sufficiently the person’s needs have been met such as green is sufficient, amber is partially sufficient and red is insufficient. The domains and ratings for each domain are clearly defined.
The aim of the framework is for those involved in the care planning for a person to review and rate each domain and in turn to determine the next stage of effective and collaborative care planning actions. The goal is to try to work towards green for all domains where possible.
The domains can be reviewed in any order and discussion needs to include:
The Connect Behaviours webpage is the interactive version of the framework and allows you to:
Connect Behaviours can be used in supervision, case discussion, complex care planning meeting and with the person themselves (view Connect Behaviours easy read version).
If it is useful then please use the accompanying discussion record template to document the discussion and action planning.
Please note that Connect Behaviours does not store any data. It is just an interactive tool to facilitate planning so any documents that you open from the webpage you will need to open and store locally.
