Improving Knowledge and Skills in Dementia Care Practice in Merseycare NHS Trust

Description

We have been working with Merseycare NHS Trust over 2011-12 to develop skills and knowledge in dementia care.

Aims

  • To develop a skilled workforce in dementia care
  • To support knowledge implementation in ward areas through reflective practice and coaching

Methods

Face to face training in Person Centred Care, legal issues and ethics, activities and care planning.

Outcomes

Post training we are continuing to work with the care teams, using reflection and coaching to help embed new knowledge into practice.

We are due to complete this project at the end of 2012.
