Abstract

This paper aims to establish the extent to which memory rehabilitation is carried out by Community Psychiatric Nurses (CPNs) working with dementia; to investigate awareness and knowledge of memory rehabilitation and memory processes amongst CPNs; and to explore the factors that influence deployment of memory rehabilitation advice. Participants, consisting of sixty five Community Psychiatric Nursing staff working in Community Mental Health Teams for the Elderly (CMHTEs) in Greater Glasgow NHS, completed specially developed questionnaires exploring knowledge of memory processes and knowledge of memory strategies. Data were collected in a structured group format. It was found that CPNs consider delivery of memory rehabilitation strategies as part of their role, but report limited knowledge of the wide range of potential memory strategies and aids. Specialist training should address this gap.
