Implementation or Education: Changing Dementia Care Practices in Hospitals
Guest Lecture – 5 December 2017
Presented by A/Prof. Laurie Grealish
Many research studies have determined that hospital staff are not well equipped to support the unique care needs of people with dementia. Authors of these studies recommend further education for staff. Following a two-year NHMRC Translating Research into Practice (TRIP) Fellowship, Associate Professor Grealish suggests that implementation science provides a wider range of change strategies than education alone. This presentation will review strategies that hold promise in the area of in-hospital dementia care.
