Carer-driven dementia education for professionals.

Author information

Branston Court, Burton on Trent.


The pilot project described here took the form of action research, focusing on dementia awareness education for nurses on acute wards and in accident and emergency departments. An essential feature of the educational package was the involvement of four carers, each of whom described specific experiences. Their accounts were recorded on DVD and presented in the education sessions, which the carers also attended to add comments and answer questions. Feedback from the nurses was positive with all of them claiming new awareness and understanding of patient and carer needs. The education sessions are to be continued with other nurses.
