2017 dates to be advised
Bernie McCarthy is a licensed trainer in DCMTM and provides training in DCMTM throughout Australia.
DCMTM is the parent tool from which the SOFI-2 (used by the Aged Care Quality Agency Australia in the accreditation process) is derived.
Evaluate and improve the quality of dementia care in your aged care facility with this unique evidence based tool. DCMTM is a method designed to evaluate quality of care from the perspective of the person with dementia. It is used in aged care facilities and is based on the philosophy of person centred care, which promotes a holistic approach to care that upholds the personhood of the one with dementia.
The process of using DCMTM involves observing a number of people with dementia over a period of time and recording information about their experience of care, analysing and interpreting the data and then feeding it back to staff. This information is then used to draw up an action plan to bring about change and improvements to the wellbeing of the people observed.
Training to use DCMTM is a 4-day course which licences the user to map in their own facility. A further 4-day course is recommended for leaders of mapping in organisations.
