This Framework was commissioned and funded by the Department of Health and developed in collaboration by Skills for Health and Health Education England in partnership with Skills for Care.
It updates the original Dementia Core Skills Education and Training Framework and is a useful resource which particularly details the essential skills and knowledge necessary across the health and social care spectrum. Three tiers are described:
- Awareness, which everyone should have;
- Basic skills which are relevant to all staff in settings where people with dementia are likely to appear and;
With input from the Housing LIN dementia lead, this framework will help ensure quality and consistency in dementia education and training if you are an organisation or an individual working in health, social care or housing.
