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
