DCM™ is an observational tool developed by the Bradford Dementia Group, designed to evaluate the quality of care from the perspective of the person living with dementia. It is used in care settings such as day care services, hospitals and nursing homes. Based on the philosophy of Person-Centred Care, DCM™ promotes a holistic care approach which upholds the personhood of the person with dementia. The information gathered from DCM™ is used to develop individualized care plans to bring about changes which enhance the wellbeing of persons with dementia.
To provide participants with:
Knowledge of person-centred dementia care and its application in practice in the care setting in which you work.
The ability to use DCM™ to assess and make recommendations for the realisation of person-centred dementia care in the care setting in which you work.
By the end of this course participants will be able to:
Describe the psychological needs of people with dementia, and ways to meet them.
Use the four phases of a DCM™ practice development cycle: briefing, observation, feedback and action planning to realise person-centred care.
Brief colleagues on the purpose and conduct of DCM™ practice development cycles in your place of work.
Use observational skills to accurately apply the DCM™ (quantitative) coding frames and to gather field notes (qualitative data).
Discuss the DCM™ verbal and written feedback process, appraise the challenges that may raise and identify ways to overcome them.
Engage in collaborative action planning with care staff.
