This self-assessment framework was created by nurses and care staff to compare current dementia care for in-patient settings with the best practice criteria.
The framework is for health and social care staff, as well as the wider teams and organisations. It can be used when considering changes to improve practice, developing a plan and reviewing progress around their involvement in dementia care across the whole pathway.
The tool will help nurses and care staff evaluate dementia services and what they need to do over the coming year to improve. It will also allow the sharing of good practice and learning on a wider scale.
