Showcasing dementia learning in social services

We have published a second Promoting Excellence and its impact on social service settings booklet with support from six social care organisations and the Care Inspectorate.

The new booklet reflects how a growing team of Dementia Ambassadors throughout Scotland are taking the lead in developing and promoting dementia learning across the social service workforce.

The booklet has contributions from a broad range of organisations demonstrating the different ways they use the Promoting Excellence resources to enhance and develop good practice in dementia learning. It includes case studies from Dundee and Angus College, Stirling and Clackmannanshire Council, Meallmore Care Homes, River Clyde Homes, Bon Accord Care and Methilhaven Home.

The diversity of the organisations that contributed highlights how creativity and innovation can be applied to using the Promoting Excellence framework and resources. Reading their experiences will hopefully inspire and empower others to develop new ideas and learning initiatives to further improve the quality of life for people living with dementia.

Anna Fowlie, SSSC Chief Executive, gave thanks to everyone who contributed saying:

‘The collaborative work between the SSSC and NHS Education for Scotland (NES) makes sure the Promoting Excellence in dementia learning resources are responsive and relevant, as the sector goes through transformation and reform. This booklet celebrates the fantastic work done so far and demonstrates how the Promoting Excellence framework is making a significant, positive difference to personal outcomes.’

Read the second Promoting Excellence and its impact of social service settings and see for yourself how dementia learning has benefited the workforce and community. The first booklet is also available on our website.
