Abstract

Most of the findings were positive, demonstrating the potential to improve students' knowledge, attitude and comfort level, however methods and evaluation were not always sufficiently reported, making them difficult to use or replicate. This review highlights the need for studies with rigorous methods to determine evidence based best practice for all those working with people with dementia in order to provide effective care and improve their quality of life.
