This online educational resource (in .pdf format), produced by NHS Education for Scotland, is targeted at staff employed in emergency departments. It is designed to help these staff recognise people with suspected dementia and to provide care appropriate to the needs of dementia patients.
This carefully planned and engaging learning resource comprises four sections:
- Initial Contact.
There are clickable “key point” summary pages in each section, plus numerous helpful appendices and references. This is an excellent resource. Well worth repeated visits.
