Using the latest ideas on good practice from the Bradford Dementia Group, Anthea Innes provides a complete and concise guide to running a training programme for dementia care workers. She begins with a brief outline of the key factors to consider prior to the design, delivery and implementation of a programme. In particular the book stresses the importance of getting to know the care setting in which the trainees will practise, to ensure that the training has direct relevance to participants.

The author then discusses the theoretical and practical issues involved in designing the training programme, including advice on how best to tailor it to the audience, and highlighting the practical points a trainer needs to consider when delivering a programme. She considers the problems that arise when attempting to convert theory into practice, as well as factors that can help training be relevant and acted upon. The book concludes with a discussion about the best means of evaluating a training programme and its impact on practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Its 16 chapters are all of a length that should not intimidate the reader and while many are heavily referenced, they still retain an accessible style. -- Community Care
This book builds upon the author's experience of delivering training courses to carers in Nursing and residential homes. I would recommend it as an aide memoire for those preparing or engaged in practice development. In as much, its utility is not restricted to one clinical setting, although dementia care workers will find the specific examples helpful. -- International Journal of Geriatric Psychology
Anthea Innes has used her own experience of working with Anchor Trust positively. She has blended theoretical aspects with a practical approach. The approach has been designed in a user-friendly way. Each chapter is well presented with case illustrations. Ms Innes provides a concise guide to running a training programme. This includes key factors such as design, delivery and evaluation programme... The importance of the person-centred approach is also emphasized. Running courses in nursing/care homes needs careful planning and the evaluation process is important.The writer has emphasized this throughout the book... Residential workers working across the client groups will benefit by the approach advocated by Innes. -- Bulletin
Using the latest ideas on good practice from the Bradford Dementia Group, Anthea Innes provides a complete and concise guide to running a training programme for dementia care workers. The format is very clear and easy to follow. It explores the theories and practical issues that are needed when planning a training programme for dementia care workers. The information provided is relevant and up to date looking at care plans, assessments, staff action plans and obstacles that may need to be looked at in different care settings. Chapter 6 looks at evaluation and is particularly very helpful. Case studies are used as examples of situations that staff may come across in a work situation. Anthea Innes is to be congratulated on producing this excellent book which will I am sure be an important tool in many a trainer's toolbox. It will be a very useful source of reference to care staff and others that are working on N.V.Q.'s and other courses. -- Professional Social Work
... provides a thorough look at all the stages of the training process, and is a good checklist of the complex variety of tasks and skills involved. -- Ageing and Society
