Dementia Care Mapping (DCM™) for Realising Person-centred Care

DCM is an observational tool developed by the Bradford Dementia Group, designed to evaluate the quality of care from the perspective of the person living with dementia. It is used in care settings such as day care services, hospitals and nursing homes.  Based on the philosophy of Person-Centred Care, DCM promotes a holistic care approach which upholds the personhood of the person with dementia.  The information gathered from DCM is used to develop individualized care plans to bring about changes which enhance the wellbeing of persons with dementia.


This 4-day course equips participants to use DCM within their own organization or workplace. It covers the underlying philosophy of Person-Centred Care, four DCM-coding frames, rules governing coding, processing of data, and practical issues around briefing and providing feedback to care staff. A Basic User certification is awarded by the University of Bradford.

Target Audience Health and Social Care Practitioners who have an interest in evaluating and transforming the quality of care for persons with dementia in care settings.
