The aim of this project was to develop, test and implement a simulation based educational package on dementia. Following a literature review of simulation in dementia education and analysis of baseline data, a simulation package incorporating three workshops was developed in collaboration with a number of stakeholders from health and social care. The three workshops are: Dementia Diagnostic Assessment, Behaviours that Challenge and Person Centred Care.


Evaluation data showed that participants' overall experience of the training was positive and that knowledge scores were significantly higher post simulation training.
This project is now being rolled out across the 13 LETBs with money awarded from the 2014/15 dementia project budget through the HEE Dementia Priority Programme Board.
