Responding to the Laing & Buisson report on dementia, the National Care Forum (NCF), which represents not-for profit providers, says training alone will not improve quality of care. NCF executive director Des Kelly said it seemed likely that the focus on targets for NVQs had been at the expense of other training including dementia care.

‘For training to be effective it has to be set in the context of a supportive culture that enables staff to reflect, learn and develop.,’ said Mr Kelly.
