The “Getting to Know Me” training programme has been designed to support staff involved in dementia awareness within general hospitals. This manual introduces training materials developed in Manchester, and offers step by step instructions on delivering “Getting to Know Me” training sessions.
“The ‘Getting to Know Me’ training programme has been developed with funding from the Greater Manchester Health Innovation and Education Cluster (GM-HIEC). The project took place during 2010-2013, and was a collaboration between the University of Manchester, Royal Bolton Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust. The aim of the project was to pilot and evaluate dementia awareness training for staff working with people with dementia in general hospitals”. (Back page)
