National dementia education and awareness programme: evaluation of the pilot project
De Siún, Anna; Manning, Mary; National Dementia Education Steering Group
A sub education group with expertise in education and dementia was established to develop the necessary content and design of the programme. The findings from the needs analysis, together with recommendations from a literature review determined the shape and curriculum of the educational programme. It was decided to first develop a generiC education and awareness programme, which would be delivered over three and a half education days. The aim of the generic programme is to provide participants with the knowledge skills and attitudes required to deliver high quality, person-centred care to people with dementia. The learning outcomes address all the areas identified in the needs analysis and the delivery and methodology used was eclectic in its approach The pilot programme was delivered in two geographical areas; Roscommon and Mayo, to staff across public and private residential units for older people; intellectual disability services; acute services; community and voluntary services. The participants were representative of both nursing and non nursing staff. 5 This evaluation was carried out to capture participants and facilitators views on the content and delivery of the programme, the impact of the programme on staff knowledge and attitudes to dementia, and manager's views on the impact of the programme on their organisation/area of work.
