The University of Wollongong and Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) are conducting a joint research project on feeding difficulties of dementia patients in hospitals. As part of this project, we are inviting health care workers to complete an online survey about their knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of feeding a patient with dementia. The survey findings will inform the development of an education program using objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) for nurses and allied health professionals to support the nutrition of patients with dementia. This could possibly further patient-centred care of people with dementia in hospitals.

Please answer the survey in this link to help:

This survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
