Abstract As the population ages, the number of patients with dementia in acute care environments is projected to increase rapidly. However, many acute care nurses have undertaken little or no dementia training, potentially leading to reduced quality of care for these patients. This article details the development and delivery of a tailored education program to improve the quality of care of patients with dementia in a large, urban hospital in Australia. Designed specifically for the existing context, environment, and knowledge levels, the program was developed from multiple inputs including expert opinion, literature on workplace and dementia care training, and feedback from participants. The program was delivered to acute care nurses and allied health staff within an outcome-based, microteaching model. The development and delivery techniques used in this program also are discussed.
