An evaluation of Protected Engagement Time in dementia care wards in England

12.45pm

Seminars

Public

Centre for Mental Health Research and Joint Institute of Mental Health Nursing Seminar

Room: C143, Tait Building.

Presenters: Dr Fiona Nolan & Sarah Heneker, Camden & Islington NHS Foundation Trust.

Protected Engagement Time (PET) places high quality interpersonal relationships between staff and patients and the centre of ward practice by re-organising ward routines so that, during fixed periods, staff focus solely on patient contact and interaction.

This approach has been increasingly used with people with dementia with positive anecdotal feedback from the managers of services using it. However, to date, there is a very limited body of evidence to support its effectiveness or how it should be implemented in a setting specifically for older people in order to achieve the best results.

Admission is free.

Lunch will be provided from 12:45. The seminar will commence at 13:00.

Please accept the invitation only if you will be attending for catering purposes.
