Dementia self-assessment framework published

A tool developed to ensure implementation of the nursing contribution to dementia care, including the 6Cs and dementia pathway, the self-assessment framework was created by nurses and care staff to compare current dementia care with the best practice criteria.

It is for use by health and social care staff, as well as wider teams and organisations when:
considering changes to improve practice
developing a plan
reviewing progress around their involvement in dementia care across the whole pathway
The contribution to the dementia care pathway by nurses and care staff includes:
increasing basic awareness
reducing stigma
assessing, diagnosing and continuing to support people with dementia and carers through to end of life care
