Additional modules will focus on helping providers “know the person” with dementia and provide person-centered care in the context of changing needs. Twelve modules will be developed using an iterative approach involving staff evaluation and feedback focused on usefulness, and will be evaluated in a small pilot program and using an online questionnaire. The provider-focused training complements the family focused FIC-based training that is available the Iowa Geriatric Education Center (IGEC).
