Abstract

Win Tadd Senior Research Fellow, Academic Department Geriatric Medicine Wales College of Medicine, Cardiff University Having introduced the Dignity and Older Europeans Project and described its methods together with some major findings in the previous issue of Quality in Ageing (6,1), the contributions to this issue will focus on the project’s third phase which involved the development of inter-professional educational materials and policy and service recommendations for the care of older people in Europe. The first paper by Tadd and Dieppe, describes the creation of the educational materials developed as part of the Dignity and Older Europeans (DOE) Project. The majority of participants (older people, health and social care professionals and younger members of the public) all identified the need for an understanding of dignity and ways in which it may be maintained to be included in all professional education. Based on these findings a range of materials have been produced, including a poster of the dignity balance containing 5 core messages; a leaflet highlighting lists of actions and approaches that will either promote dignity or result in indignity; an extensive bibliography of papers and policies about dignity; and a multidisciplinary workbook.
