Dementia Friendly PracticesJune 29 2015
Dr Katrina Webster West Hampshire CCG Clinical Director for Mental Health, Jason Hope Senior Commissioning Manager and Wessex Deanery Quality Improvement Fellow Dr Verity Turner have been working with three surgeries as they explored the process of becoming ‘dementia friendly’.
The project identified many resources that can support this process. The practices started with the principles of the iSPACE Dementia Friendly GP Surgeries work and resulted in resources that the project and surgeries used in the process.
A ‘cultural web’ tool designed to look at how the day-to-day practices within a surgery influence the environment for patients with dementia, their carers and the staff. Cultural Web Tool
A summary of actions to include in a dementia review. Dementia review suggestions
Patient and carer leaflets
Much of the work has been identifying existing resources and encouraging the sharing of these. The Dementia Roadmap is a platform for this to continue.
