This project evaluated the impact of VDT ® training on the understanding and knowledge of staff in the Princess Alexandra Hospital that provide care or come into contact with people with dementia in the acute hospital setting.
The design of the study was primarily qualitative, collecting delegate’s views of the VDT ® via questionnaires, focus group or telephone interview.
Data collection concentrated on five key areas: the VDT ®training experience; impact of the training on staff working with people with dementia; strengths and limitations of the training; and impact of the training on staff members’ clinical practice.
