Breaking News: Evaluation Report Published for Excellent Care in a Dementia Friendly Acute Hospital (University of Worcester, Association for Dementia Studies)

[A version of this item appears in: Dementia and Elderly Care: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 3 Issue 3, October 2012].

Summary

We have just this week learned that the final evaluation of the New Cross Hospital Dementia Project has been published. This report is said to have been presented at Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, to a select audience only, sometime during June 2012. There are two volumes to this thorough evaluation.

This evaluation report represents, in many respects, the crowning culmination of the award-winning Dementia Project (2010 – 2012) held at New Cross Hospital with guidance from the Association for Dementia Studies (ADS) at the University of Worcester. The four main sections of the report address the impact of the various interventions making up the “dementia care bundle” on four broad areas:

  1. Patients and their carers / families.
  2. Staff.
  3. Organisational-level culture and performance.
  4. The wider local health and social care system.
