Sharing our knowledge
We've been sharing our
specialist knowledge of dementia with colleagues from a
Staff from Belvedere Ward, a specialist dementia inpatient unit
at Devon Partnership NHS Trust visited Liddington Ward our own
specialist dementia ward in Swindon.
The aim of the day was to share examples of good practice and
compare dementia related policy and procedures. It also
provided the opportunity to build links between the wards and the
Nurse Consultant in Dementia Care Chris Wall said, "Dementia is
a global, national and local healthcare priority. Sharing
experiences and knowledge with neighbouring organisations and teams
is a key component in improving the care experience for those
people living with dementia."
The day was a great successful day which Acting Matron
Frances O'Hara Ball and Charge Nurse Karen Webb helped to
facilitate. The Team on Liddington Ward hope to reciprocate and
visit Devon in the near future.
