dc.description.abstractBackground: This first in a three part series on dementia care explores communication. The Gold Standards Framework includes a workstream on improving end of life care in care homes; communication is one of seven key tasks within the GSF. Aim and method: This study aimed to gather care home staff views on communication issues. Focus groups were conducted with 36 members of direct care staff from nine nursing and residential care homes. Results: Three types of communication were identified: staff to staff; staff to resident; and staff to family. Discussion and conclusion: The implications of different approaches to communication are discussed, and recommendations made for practice.
