Description

This programme aims to equip nurses with knowledge and skills in order to develop a person-centred, ability focussed, meaningful activity plan of care for older persons living with dementia. It is hoped that this will in turn contribute to improving quality of life for those in their care in line with national standards and local policy. Through this programme, participants will acquire theories on activities in care and explore their personal beliefs and values. Participants will practice the application of what they have learned and through reflection and discussion will examine the value of their learning and the relevance to their work. On completion of the course, participants will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of meaningful activities to contribute to future planning of care.
