The objective of this integrated literature review was to identify and examine

effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions towards BPSD. Database

searches were documented following the PRISMA flow diagram and included

papers were judged by the researchers using the SAHTAASS protocol. Coding

of the papers was carried out using Polit and Beck matrix for literature review.

It was concluded that several non-pharmacological interventions showed a

positive influence on BPSD such as stimulating interventions, social and personalized

activities and physical exercise. Also, education/training of healthcare

professionals and equipment in form of a structured BPSD protocol resulted

in decreased BPSD.
