Major report calls for better nurse training in dementia care


Anonymous | 17-Dec-2011 9:58 am Everything you have posted seems 'likely to be spot-on' to me - however, as itis well-known in NT circles that I am almost invariably wrong in my opinions (because I am not a nurse, so all of my beliefs MUST De Facto be flawed) I can only conclude that you are actually wrong. Doesn't this come down to both of the things which are usually the answer (sometimes only one is necessary, but here 2) to most NHS problems ? 1 Better training and 'systems' (ie where dementia patients are placed within the system) 2 Enough staff to cope But 2 costs money, and 1 might cost money (it could save money) depending on how effective the changes are, versus how extensive the training/system changes are.
