dc.description.abstractExplored how good practice in relation to quality of care initiatives in dementia care transpose into learning disability settings. Dementia care mapping (DCM), an evaluation method that measures quality of care from the service user's perspective, was applied in learning disability environments to evaluate its effectiveness and efficiency in this setting. 22 Ss (aged 20-63 yrs) with severe mental impairment (excluding dementia) and communication difficulties were observed to test the assertion that DCM could help to evaluate their experiences of receiving care which they could not describe for themselves. Three residential care areas were observed. Observations recorded a behavior category code, a well-being/ill-being score, personal detractions, and positive events. Results demonstrate the application of the method to be partially successful. The data produced compare favorably in quality, quantity, and detail with those collected in dementia care areas. The authors conclude that an analysis of data reveals great potential for DCM; however, they add that modification and adaptation of result indices and coding frameworks should be considered as possibilities for future work.
