This web page is the best bibliography available in the UK (to our knowledge) on the subject of dementia care in hospital.
This page is effectively an online resource centre, or “hub”, linking to web-based information sources (and some traditionally published materials) on the subject of acute hospital care. Resources are grouped in themes, namely:
- Admission to Hospital
- Dementia Awareness
- Carers and Personalisation
- Discharge from Hospital
- Education and Staff Training
- End of Life Care
- The Hospital Environment
- Liaison Services
- Healthy Living
This Department of Health bibliography supports the Dementia Commissioning Pack, so it may be assumed that it will be updated regularly.
