Next Week 18th-24th June is Dementia Awareness Week so despite it having been around for a while I'm adding "Promoting Excellence: Informed about Dementia: Improving practice" and asking "How aware are you?"

Promoting Excellence is a knowledge and skills framework developed by NHS Education for Scotland and the Scottish Social Services Council to support delivery of the aspirations and change actions outlined in the Dementia Strategy. The Framework was launched on the 6 June 2011.
These videos support all staff working with people with dementia their families and carers
