Dementia care and theatre

In 2013, the RCN Foundation funded £82,000 for the innovative play ‘Inside Out of Mind’ at University of Nottingham, which addressed issues around dementia care. Each performance was followed by a discussion session where health care professionals shared their experiences of dementia care. The play was a result of research carried out by Professor Justine Schneider and colleagues at the Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham. From this research Tanya Myers, co-Artistic Director of Meeting Ground Theatre Company, was commissioned to create a play to address issues around dementia care. Training materials based on the play have also been developed to facilitate training among health care professionals.
