NHS Improvement has published a new framework to help NHS directors improve care standards for those living with dementia during their stay in hospital.
Drawing on the experiences people have shared with Healthwatch, the framework sets out eight standards that services can work towards, ranging from diagnosis to staff training which are
- Person-centred care
- Patient and carer information and support
- Involvement and co-design
- Workforce education and training
- Nutrition and hydration.
