Creating a Dementia Friendly Hospital: Local Contributions Have Global Influence (ICN / WHO / NHS England)

Dementia and Elderly Care News

Summary

International Nurses’ Day, taking the theme “Nurses – A Force For Change: Improving Health Systems’ Resilience” this year, fell on May 12th 2016. Just a few days earlier, International Day of the Midwife took place on May 5th 2016.

To help commemorate these two occasions, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has circulated a recently developed compendium of good practice in nursing and midwifery. This compendium presents 55 case studies from 18 countries, and illustrates the fundamental importance nurses and midwives, across the European region, in enhancing public health and well-being in different care settings.

One of the contributions selected from the UK for this international compendium summarises work at the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust in improving the care of people with dementia receiving acute hospital in-patient treatment.
