Travers, Catherine & Lie, David (2013) A brief staff dementia education program : implementation and evaluation. In 46th Australian Association of Gerontology National Conference, 27-29 November 2013, SMC Conference & Function Centre, Sydney, NSW. (Unpublished)


Brief dementia education training programs appear to be effective in improving knowledge about dementia and self-confidence in interacting with patients with dementia.

It is recommended that brief dementia training sessions be provided on a regular, on-going basis, particularly in view of frequent staff changes in the acute hospital environment.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
