This research aimed to evaluate a brief training intervention designed for nurses working in dementia care. The content of the training material collated was in response to three main factors: 1. A local unit concerning the use of medication to treat non cognitive symptoms of dementia. 2. A recent document produced by the SIGN Group (Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network). 3. Nurses' perceptions of their own training needs. Core topics included; a recap on dementia, non cognitive features of dementia, drug treatments used in dementia care and psychological approaches to dementia care. Nurses' attitudes pre and post training, towards drug and non-drug interventions for non cognitive symptoms of dementia were investigated using questionnaires. Attitude change and responses to a post-training evaluation form were examined in relation to reported job satisfaction. Several demographic variables were also examined. Data was examined across wards as well as pre and post training. Implications for future training were discussed.
