Positive Behaviour Support at Bloom Healthcare

Introducing Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) at Bloom Healthcare

Bloom Healthcare, we are proud to introduce our service offering – Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). This service further enhances our suite of NDIS allied health services, reinforcing our commitment to providing comprehensive, client-centred care.

What is Positive Behaviour Support

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence based approach designed to improve the quality of life of individuals by addressing the underlying cause of challenging behaviours. PBS focuses on understanding the reasons behind the behaviours and implementing proactive, supportive strategies rather than merely controlling. By prioritising person-centred and preventative measures, PBS seeks to reduce and eliminate the need for restrictive practices, insuring the individuals with disabilities can achieve their full potential in a dignified and respectful manner.

Where restrictive practices are recommended, they are always done with the approval of the relevant state-based authority, ensure that all other avenues have been exhausted and that a plan is in place to review whether the restrictive practice remains appropriate.

Key Components of Our PBS Services


1. Comprehensive Behaviour Assessments

At Bloom Healthcare, the foundation of effective Positive Behaviour Support begins with comprehensive Functional Behaviour Assessment (FBA). Our skilled practitioners use a variety of assessment tools and methods to deeply understand each client’s unique circumstances. This involves an in-depth evaluation of the individual’s environment, personal history, interactions, and the specific context in which challenging behaviours occur. We consider factors such as family dynamics, educational settings, and community interactions, ensuring that all potential influences on challenging behaviour are explored.

These assessments are not one off processes but dynamic and interactive, adapting as we gain new insights into the individuals life and responses to interventions. The outcome of these assessments is a detailed Behaviour Support Plan (BSP) that is tailored to meet the individuals specific needs, promoting improved overall well-being, and facilitating positive outcomes in various aspects of life, whilst minimising the use of restrictive practices.

2. Person-Centred Planning

Central to our PBS approach is the commitment to person-centred planning. This strategy ensures that the individual is not only involved in the planning process but is at the very heart of it. Our plans are meticulously crafted around participants strengths, preferences, and life goals, which actively promote engagement and ensures that interventions are more meaningful and effective. When not capable of being involved in decision-making, the guardian/nominee and other appropriate stakeholders will be engaged in the decision-making process.

In person-centred planning, we align our strategies with the individual’s aspirations, whether they involve education, employment, social relationships, or leisure activities. This alignment helps to ensure that the support provided not only addresses the challenging behaviours but also enriches the individual’s life, making daily activities more engaging and fulfilling, whilst taking a risk management approach and ensuring the participants safety at all times.

3. Family and Caregiver Engagement

Recognising that family and caregivers play a crucial role in the effectiveness of any positive behaviour support plan, Bloom Healthcare actively involved these key stakeholders in all aspects of planning and implementation. We engage families and caregivers through regular consultations, workshops, and training sessions designed to equip them in all the necessary skills and understanding to support their loved ones effectively.

This collaborative approach helps to create a consistent and supportive environment for the individual, both at home and with the wider community. By empowering families and caregivers with knowledge and practical communication skills, we enhance their ability to contribute positively to the behaviour support process.

4. Ongoing Monitoring and Support

Positive Behaviour Support is an evolving process that requires ongoing monitoring and support to ensure its effectiveness over time. At Bloom Healthcare, our team continuously evaluate the impact of the recommended and implemented strategies and makes necessary adjustments to the BSP in response to the individual’s changing needs and circumstances.

This dynamic approach allows us to respond prompt Lee to new challenges and successes, promoting continuous improvement and ensuring that the support remains aligned with the individual’s progress and goals. Regular reviews and feedback sessions with all involved parties are integral to this process, fostering an adaptive and responsive PBS service.

5. Professional Development and Supervision

Our commitment to maintaining high standards of care is reflected in our rigourous program of professional development and supervision for our behaviour support practitioners. We ensure that our team stays at the cutting edge of PBS practices through continuous training aligned with the latest research, best practice and regulatory requirements.

This commitment to professional excellence is foundational to providing high-quality care and support across our services. By fostering a culture of learning and growth, we ensure that our practitioners are not only well equipped to handle complex behaviour challenges but are also leaders in the field of Positive Behaviour Support.

At Bloom Healthcare, these key components of our PBS services embody our dedication to delivering personalised, effective, and compassionate support, enabling individuals to thrive in all areas of their lives.
