Mindfulness-based stress reduction for family carers of people with dementia. Caring for people with dementia is highly challenging, and family carers are recognised as being at increased risk of physical and mental ill-health.

Music-based therapeutic interventions for people with dementia. Dementia is a clinical syndrome with a number of different causes which is characterised by deterioration in cognitive, behavioural, social and emotional functions.

Blood pressure-lowering treatment for preventing recurrent stroke, major vascular events, and dementia in patients with a history of stroke or transient ischaemic attack. Stroke is an important cause of death and disability worldwide. Since high blood pressure is an important risk factor for stroke and stroke recurrence, drugs that lower blood pressure might play an important role in secondary stroke prevention.To investigate whether blood pressure-lowering drugs (BPLDs) started at least 48 (...) hours after the index event are effective for the prevention of recurrent stroke, major vascular events, and dementia in people with stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA). Secondary objectives were to identify subgroups of people in which BPLDs are effective, and to investigate the optimum systolic blood pressure target after stroke or TIA for preventing recurrent stroke, major vascular events, and dementia.In August 2017, we searched the Trials Registers of the Cochrane Stroke Group

192. Using Video-Reflexive Ethnography to Engage Hospital Staff to Improve Dementia Care (PubMed)

Using Video-Reflexive Ethnography to Engage Hospital Staff to Improve Dementia Care In this article, we discuss how video-reflexive ethnography may be useful in engaging staff to improve dementia care in a hospital medical unit. Seven patients with dementia were involved in the production of patient-story videos, and fifty members of staff (nurses, physicians, and allied health practitioners) participated in video-reflexive groups. We identified five substantial themes to describe how video (...) -reflexive groups might contribute to enacting person-centered care for improving dementia care: (a) seeing through patients' eyes, (b) seeing normal strange and surprised, (c) seeing inside and between, (d) seeing with others inspires actions, and (e) seeing with the team builds a culture of learning. Our findings suggest that video reflexivity is not only useful for staff engagement but also effective in enhancing team capacity to enact person-centered care in the hospital setting.
