I am currently undertaking a 6 month secondment as a dementia champion to the education department. This is very valuable and should be made more available so that nurses and ward staff who are caring for people with dementia on a daily basis have a better understanding of dementia and of the services available, therefore improving care for patients.

Outcome

Enhanced strategic awareness of services within and outside of the trust, using this knowledge to improve experiences for patients that I care for and ensure high quality of care which is safe and effective.
