Implementing Care the Person-centred Way

As a continuation of the Transforming Dementia Care Series Part 1, participants will be introduced to an easy method to appraise how well current care practices create a healthy social psychology that enables the older person with dementia to thrive in an institutional care setting.  Participants will consider the impact of current services on the psychological wellbeing of individuals and identify and implement small scale person centred approaches that can have significant impact on the care team and the older person, including persons with dementia.


Learning Objectives

  • Be able to use an easy toolkit that reviews the organisation across key areas such as the philoso-phy of care, people, physical place, programmes and services;

  • Identify and prioritize small-scale changes that can address gaps found in the provision of person-centred care

  • Design implementation plan for the small-scale (low or no cost) changes that are prioritised

Target Audience This course is intended for health and social service practitioners working in hospitals and intermediate and long-term care facilities, who have a basic understanding of dementia.
