DCM™ for Leading Practice Change

This is a four day advanced course which develops leadership skills, enabling you to use DCM™ to effectively embed high quality person-centred care across your organisation.

You will be supported to use evidence based reflection on your role in leading change to make a difference to the quality of care.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Deliver a DCM™ related service improvement utilising leadership, quality and change management approaches
  • Use DCM™ to embed person-centred care across your organisation, which can include a variety of client groups and a range of settings
  • Use DCM™ to monitor and improve the quality of care practice across your organisation and to prepare for regulation and inspection
  • Ensure effective stakeholder involvement, including people with dementia and their families, in the DCM™ process
  • Use best practice examples and research evidence to demonstrate the impact and effectiveness of DCM™

Attendance is a three-day block followed by a one-day review, held at the University of Bradford.

Care providers can also commission this training for in-house delivery to staff in their organisation.

Those successfully completing the course receive a University of Bradford certificate recording their status as an Advanced User of Dementia Care Mapping™. The course can be included as part of measures to fulfil the ambitions of the National Dementia Strategy.
