Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on “A logic model for the implementation of a regional workforce strategy in Positive Behavioural Support”.

Design/methodology/approach

This commentary provides a discussion of the importance of evaluating positive behaviour support (PBS) training and key issues relating to this. This provides a springboard from which researchers/practitioners may consider these issues when designing and evaluating PBS training courses.

Findings

Three main issues are explored: the necessary diversity and breadth of PBS training approaches, the outcome domains to be evaluated and wider systemic issues that may influence PBS training and evaluation of its effectiveness.

Originality/value

Effective PBS implementation requires robust training. To achieve this, it will be important for the field to overcome issues relating to the evaluation of training approaches.
