Supporting Patients with Cognitive Impairment to Achieve Better Outcomes in Hospital

Hospitals are increasingly busy places. Patients present with more complex needs and are in hospital for shorter stays. Statistics show that patients with cognitive impairment have particularly poor outcomes.

This one day interactive workshop aims to assist staff in gaining skills to achieve optimal outcomes for patients with cognitive impairment.

Participants will:

  • Understand cognitive impairment and how to provide quality support and care
  • Understand the value of a holistic approach to assessment
  • Develop effective engagement skills using a person centred approach
  • Recognise and reflect on risk and quality of life for patients in a hospital setting.
