Welcome to our new Dementia Champions
Welcome to the dementia champions module, enhancing person centred care (NS466). There are 117 dementia champions in the network to date and we are hoping to scale this to 350 by the end of 2015. Dementia champions help to improve the life of people with dementia through creativity, role modelling and passing on their knowledge.
You have been chosen for this module because you have demonstrated a willingness to positively impact dementia care where you work.
You will meet and learn from many other health and social care professionals from acute, community and long term care backgrounds both online and face to face. This will be the first enrolment in this new Dementia Champions format. We hope you will enjoy engaging with this module and most of all we hope we will challenge even the most experienced practitioners to consider their approach to person centred care.
