A dementia education scheme.

Author information

Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, Truro, Cornwall.


The Cornwall dementia and communication difficulties education scheme is a simple strategy to enable provision of more effective and appropriate care to patients with memory and communication difficulties throughout healthcare settings in Cornwall. An acute hospital audit found that the scheme improved awareness, documentation and care of this patient group. The scheme has become the basis of Cornwall's dementia strategy.
