This program is relevant for all staff who wish to champion better outcomes for people living with dementia during their hospital experience.
This two day program will support participants to undertake a comprehensive train-the-trainer approach to develop expertise in the care of patients with cognitive impairment. The Dementia Hospital Champion will be provided with education and reflective practice opportunities to enable them to become a resource person in their workplace. Participants will receive ongoing support, mentoring and education to further develop their skills and knowledge.
Having staff trained as ‘Dementia Champions’ in hospital positively transforms caring for those with cognitive impairment, providing and sustaining best practice dementia care and ensuring optimal outcomes for these patients
