Abstract

Improving care for people with dementia is now recognised as an international priority. However, this is a complex issue as the quality of dementia care is dependent on a wide range of care-providers including registered practitioners, support staff and informal carers. In this guest editorial we discuss how learning and development can play a vital role in transforming care and equipping staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need in order to provide high quality, person-centred and compassionate care.
