Abstract:

People with dementia experience adverse outcomes such as pressure sores during their stay in acute hospitals. The application of a systems approach in an acute setting places an emphasis on the patient’s journey in addition to the organisational factors that are present within a hospital context. This article draws upon principles obtained from a theoretical model, which was extracted from the work of Edwards (1972), Hawkins (1987) and Zecevic et al. (2007), in order to illustrate how the application of a novel systems approach (human interaction, environment, equipment and policy) could be used in acute hospital settings to reduce adverse health outcomes by using an imaginary patient with dementia.
