Human Rights In Dementia
NIHR HS&DR programme
Project registration number: HS&DR - 12/209/53
Professor Peter Kinderman, University of Liverpool
This project aims to discover whether introducing a Human Rights Based Approach to health care in dementia hospital inpatient wards or care homes leads to increases in the quality of life and well-being of people with dementia and improvements in the standard of care that they receive. A Human Rights Based Approach to health care bridges the gap between law (the Human Rights Act) and care provision by providing staff with practical strategies to assist them in delivering care that is both person centred and mindful of an individual's human rights.
