Raising Awareness (Experience, knowledge and attitudes)
Only three papers published between 2010 and 2014 examine knowledge of, and attitudes to dementia on the island of Ireland. Two of these explore attitudes of health professionals, i.e. nursing home managers and community pharmacists. Both focus on one aspect of dementia; pain and pain management. In contrast, the third paper examines the knowledge and attitudes of the public. This reflects the research in wider literature beyond the island of Ireland where a limited body of work examines public attitudes. All of the papers are set in NI.
