1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
To provide health for our patients in all activities.To ensure the maximum benefit for our patients, whilst being aware of the limit of our resources.To treat all equitably, ensuring that all patients are treated with dignity, respect and compassion.To support and encourage our staff in order to achieve the above.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
As outlined in our practice objectives, we must be mindful of resources.
Look into organising Dementia Friends information sessions to help their understanding of dementia and how some people can be affected by it.
Look into potentially adding to our appointments system to help make practice staff are aware of patients with dementia to ensure that special consideration is taken with missed appointments.
