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

Summary

The official evaluation report for the New Cross Hospital Dementia Project has been published. This report was presented initially at Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust in 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” with respect to four broad areas of consideration:

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