The Dementia Self-Assessment Framework (Department of Health)

Summary

The Dementia Self-Assessment Framework is a tool developed by nurses and care staff to compare current standards of dementia care with the best practice. This tool has been designed to help when evaluating dementia services, when thinking about quality improvements in practice and when planning / reviewing dementia care across the whole patient care pathway. It might also facilitate sharing of good practice and learning on a wider scale.
