Despite the need to develop the dementia care workforce, it is not clear which training interventions best enhance workers’ capacity, reduce turnover and improve care outcomes. We want to explore mangers ideas about future care delivery and workplace supports.
Researchers at the Wicking Dementia Centre are seeking input on the design of a new workforce program called Work4Dementia. Managers of aged care organisations are invited to participate in a focus group and brief survey (approx. 1 hour) to be held in July, at the Wicking Dementia Centre or by phone.
If you would like to contribute or want more information, please contact the investigators on (03) 6226 2657 or KateEllen.Elliott@utas.edu.au.
