Evaluation of online resources to support quality care in dementia

Posted on: October 11th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has partnered with the University of Bradford (UoB) to evaluate the effectiveness of two elfh elearning programmes in preparing the dementia workforce for quality care.

In the proposed implementation of the Dementia Challenge 2025, workforce is critical and HEE is playing a key role in increasing the capability and skills of the workforce.

Learners are invited to evaluate the Dementia programme, which was developed with UoB, and the Lived Experience of Dementia programme, which was developed with Bournemouth University and Alzheimer’s Research UK. There are 2 brief surveys to complete; one before completing the session and one after completion.

All roles across the dementia workforce are encouraged to take part. To find out more about the evaluation, please visit the Dementia or Lived Experience of Dementia programme pages.

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has been working with the University of Bradford to review, add new content and update sessions within the e-Dementia elearning Programme.

The programme about dementia care has been designed to enhance the training and education of the health and care workforce. It focuses on the essential knowledge and skills needed to support and enable people living with dementia and their family carers to live as well as possible, wherever they live.

e-Dementia will also be of interest to those responsible for training and educating the health and care workforce. It can be used in a variety of ways including as part of induction; to structure reflective practice with individual staff and teams; for self-paced learning; and to revisit as a form of refresher training.

As part of the e-Dementia update, 14 new sessions have been added and 12 sessions have been retired from the programme.

New sessions added:

Module 1 Dementia awareness

  • Person-centred dementia care
