Improve the care of people with in hospitals

New innovative training to improve the care of people with dementia in general hospitals: Pat Graham, Senior Nurse for Older People at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, said: “It’s so important for the care of people with dementia that all staff understand them and how best to meet their needs. The programme can be delivered in a very flexible way which means it can be accessed easily. Our staff have benefited greatly from the training and therefore so have our patients.”

The “Getting to Know Me” training materials can be downloaded free of charge from http://www.gmhiec.org.uk.

The project was funded by Greater Manchester Health, Innovation and Education Cluster (GM-HIEC).
