Mattering in hospital 2-day In-House Workshop
Dementia Care Matters Model of Care is now equally seen as transferable into acute hospital services. A large scale review of acute hospital services within a region of the UK was commissioned by the National Health Service with Dementia Care Matters. As a result Dementia Care Matters now offers Mattering in Hospital®.
The national focus is increasing on the need to achieve culture change in the NHS. There is a renewed emphasis on the quality of people's experience in hospital. Re-establishing compassion is high on the agenda. This focus has a complete synergy with Dementia Care Matters philosophy. Our evidence base in health and social care is of developing culture change programmes which achieve quality of life. We do this through:
- undertaking detailed qualitative observation of the lived experience on hospital wards.
- strategic evaluation of the quality of acute dementia care services
- audits of ward environments to create supportive dementia areas
- developing appropriate environments for people living with a dementia
- ward leadership coaching and nurse modelling programmes
- compassionate care training in dementia care
- culture change training.
