Abstract:

The Pilot House of Memories Train the Trainer Programme, led by National Museums Liverpool and commissioned by Health Education England (HEE North West), was designed to meet Tier 2 objectives as defined by the national Dementia Core Skills Education and Training Framework. The programme was delivered in partnership with four NHS trust and health service partners across the North West between November 2015 and April 2016, to over 100 health care professionals via a cascaded train the trainer model.

This evaluation of the pilot uses standardised quantitative measures and supporting qualitative data, and has evidenced positive outcomes and strategic strengths with reference to person-centred dementia care. Specific Tier 2 strengths include dementia awareness; communication, behaviour and interaction with people with dementia; understanding of the principles of person-centred dementia care; understanding of the role of families and carers; the health and wellbeing of people with dementia; and living well with dementia.
