WYH HCP National Dementia Pilot
West Yorkshire and Harrogate Healthcare Partnership (WYH HCP) are one of only three STPs in the country identified as an STP national dementia pilot site.
The aim of the national dementia pilots is to support the reduction of unnecessary admissions to, and length of stay in, acute hospitals for people with dementia.
It has been estimated that 40% of older people in hospital have dementia. Their length of stay is twice as long as those without dementia and it is estimated that for a third of these patients an acute hospital admission could have been avoided.
People with dementia represent a quarter of delayed discharges and 10% of readmissions within 30 days.
In WYH HCP, three project areas have been identified for delivery as part of the national dementia pilot programme. These are:
Training in Advance Care Planning and Communication Skills
National pilot funds are being used to deliver Advance Care Planning/ Communication Skills training to around 1500 front-line staff across WYH HCP, using a cascade training model developed and successfully implemented in North-west England.
The second cohort of FREE training for Advance Care Planning facilitators is now open for applications.
If YES, we can give you the knowledge and skills to train and support others to help people affected by dementia in planning for their future care.
This TWO-DAY training takes place on 26th & 27th September 2019. You can download a flyer about the training here: DOWNLOAD FLYER
