Ballarat Health Services is planning to roll out Dementia Care in Hospitals Program (DCHP) nationally to four partner health services both private and public for one and a half years. Ballarat Health Services DCHP is an all of hospital education and awareness program linked to a bedside alert – the Cognitive Impairment Identifier (CII). It was developed at Ballarat Health Service in 2003 and has been introduced to 22 public health services and 3 private hospitals across Victoria.
Interested health services with a commitment to culture and practice change should contact the Ballarat Health Services DCHP on (03) 53203704 or contact Mark Yates by COB Thursday 28th August 2014. For further information, please click here.
