[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Evidence -based Practice Presentation] The global increase in the number of people with dementia will continue to place burdens on care providers. While efforts to prevent, cure or slow the progression of dementia are underway the challenge of providing quality care remains. One method of providing quality care to people with dementia is person-centered care (PCC). Developed by Kitwood (1997), PCC challenges conventional constructions of dementia which focus on neurodegenerative changes that eventually result in the loss of ?self? (Davis, 2004). PCC is aimed at the preservation of the personhood of people with dementia. Grounded in a social-psychological theory of personhood PCC offsets the disabling effects of dementia through enriching the social and relational world of the person (Dewing, 2008). In residential care settings the implementation of PCC can prove challenging as it requires a whole of system approach, not just how individual carers interact with the person. In this paper we will provide a detailed description of the PCC intervention arm of a cluster-randomised study that demonstrated a reduction of agitation in persons with dementia in residential care settings (Chenoweth, et al 2009). The intervention included both training of care staff and ongoing care planning support in the settings. We credit this two-pronged approach with the success of the PCC in promoting well-being in people with dementia.
