Project Description

This study will examine, through qualitative analysis, the effectiveness of an education programme in assisting staff to translate new evidence-based knowledge that focused on strengths and capabilities of residents with dementia into a care plan designed specifically to improve quality of care and life of people with dementia living in RACFs.

Qualitative data collected during the implementation of a trial of a new model of dementia care will be analysed.

The study will result in a translation of the model into care planning and as a result, improvement of QOL of residents with dementia.
