Dementia Pathways. For Primary Care in ireland

PCT dementia workshops

PREPARED, working alongside colleagues in HSE primary care and the HSE national dementia office, have developed materials for primary care clinicians to run a 3-hour interactive dementia workshop designed for small groups of staff in primary care teams.  The materials consist of a fully referenced guide for workshop facilitators, and a Powerpoint© presentation.

The content for the workshop covers five key areas:

  • Knowledge of dementia
  • Understanding roles and responsibilities
  • Team functioning and collaboration
  • Inter-professional communication skills
  • Supporting the person with dementia and their family

The workshop is accredited by the Irish Nursing and Midwifery Board for 3 CEUs.

If you are work in primary care or in a PCT or you have an interest and role in dementia care or primary care education, and are interested in running or attending the 3-hour dementia workshop, then please get in touch with the PREPARED team www.dementiapathways.ie
