Evidence Base for Practice
We know via research data how significant the clock drawing is in identifying specific features, and types of dementia.
Quality assurance/impact of practice
We aim to evaluate the educational resource following one year of collecting data.
We shall seek views and opinions from student nurses and any new staff as to its perceived value as an educatiuonal tool.
Practice Summary
The aim is to save a copy of the clock from each ACE111 cognitive assessment for the purposes of education for student nurses and new staff.The patient is not identified.
Practice Detail
Within the CMHNT the nurses have had many discussions around the Clock drawing within the ACE111 cognitive screening tool , and we believe that by building a unique sample collection , and by protecting the patient identity,we would be creating a valuable educational resource.
We aim to enhance the understanding of how dementia affects others and provide a buildable data base which is explicit in its terms of reference.
