Author: Chenoweth L et al
Date: April 2009
In a nutshell: The article discusses that evidence for improved outcomes for people with dementia through provision of person-centred care and dementia-care mapping is largely observational. The authors aimed to do a large, randomised comparison of person-centred care, dementia-care mapping, and usual care. Results suggest person-centred care and dementia-care mapping both seem to reduce agitation in people with dementia in residential care.
