Abstract

Symposium Background Providing undergraduate health care students with a positive placement experience in residential aged care is an ongoing challenge, with little research being published outside the discipline of nursing. Yet a well supported aged care placement offers a potentially rich environment to develop studentsí knowledge and understanding of dementia. The Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre Teaching Aged Care Facility (TACF) Program aims to identify effective structures and processes to provide students in the health care disciplines of medicine, nursing and para-medicine, with that opportunity. This symposium will present the findings from the prototype Wicking TACF program related to changes in dementia knowledge, understanding and experience across the student cohorts and issues that need to be considered in undergraduate education to facilitate student preparedness to provide care for people with dementia.
