Project Description

The Stirling University DSDC has published an audit tool which is being used in the mandatory evaluation of new environments for people with dementia in Scotland.

The tool is firmly based in the research literature that describes good environments but has not been subjected to an evaluation of its reliability and validity. This is a necessary step before the tool can be accepted by researchers.

This project will evaluate this tool with a view to determining its suitability for use in an audit and advice service.
