RCN Dementia Project

In 2012, the RCN Foundation awarded a £188,000 grant to the RCN to develop resources, including webpages, booklets and a DVD supporting the development of dementia care guidelines. The project produced best practice guidelines to improve the care of people with dementia by ensuring the support and involvement of their careers. A parliamentary reception was held to launch the guidelines with key stakeholders present. The final part of the project developed a ‘community of practice’ which consisted of a forum for nursing professionals to share and develop best practice advice.
