Question and answer
Q: explain the process of reporting possible signs of dementia within agreed ways of working.
A: The process of reporting possible signs of dementia within agreed ways of working: The diagnosis of dementia does not generally occur following the first visit to the GP. [ Generally there is a process in which the person goes through in order to receive a definitive diagnosis. During this process it is vital that any potential signs of dementia are reported following your organisation’s
policies and procedures,and in line with government guidelines: National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) NICE has devised detailed guidelines in supporting people with dementia. This also includes the early diagnosis o f dementia. It states that diagnosis should only be made following assessment to include:the person’s history • a cognitive and mental state examination • a physical examination • a review of all medication including over-the-counter • remedies As a care worker, your input in reporting possible signs of dementia would go towards the person’s history. Your input can help them receive the care that they need,when they need it. It is for this reason that you should ensure timely reporting of any observations you make or concerns you may have.To report a concern, you must follow your organisation’s guidelines. If you are unsure of what these guidelines state, you should speak with your line manager as soon as possible to ensure your actions follow best practice for the person. target='_blank' rel='nofollow'>http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Ega_n86b6P8J:' target='_blank' rel='nofollow'>www.lancashireadultlearning.net/file.php/575/Dementia/301Demetia.pdf+&cd=12&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ph ]
