A useful theoretical framework in reducing emotional and psychological problems is the Progressively Lowered Stress Threshold (PLST) model, which was originally developed by Hall and Buckwalter (1987). Adapted from stress adaptation and coping models, the PLST model identifies clinical triggers such as fatigue, change in routine, inappropriate stimulation, and internal and external demands that exceed the capacities of the person with dementia.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
