​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Designed for Community Mental Health Care Professionals

As part of capability building and alignment of training standards for the Community Mental Health Care Professionals, the Agency for Integrated Care worked with clinicians and community practitioners to develop two competency frameworks, namely Mental Health Competency Framework and Dementia Care Competency Framework.


​​​​​​​​​Care and Suppo​rt in the Community

The competency frameworks look into:

  • Provide guidance in building capabilities across the health and social care workforce;
  • Align training intervention to a consistent model;
  • Identify training needs of professionals and para-professionals who support and care for person with dementia and the caregivers;
  • Assist employers to establish job descriptions; and
  • Support individuals' self-assessment of their own developmental needs.

​​​​​​​​​Structure of the framework




Tiered Approach - Developed in consultation with key stakeholders

Building Capability in Mental Health and Dementia

Dementia Practitioners Community of Practice (CoP)

AIC has set up a Dementia Practitioners (DPs) CoP to enable practitioners to learn from each other and build capabilities in dementia care. The CoP provides a platform to upskill existing staff to facilitate the transition of GDDCs to the merged DDC service, and aims to support all DPs in delivering quality centre-based dementia care and produce a centre-based dementia care guidelines for DPs.

You may access information regarding the Community of Practice for Dementia Practitioners below:

Resources For Partners

 

Case Scenarios Toolkit On Managing Behaviours of Concern

To help care professionals manage behaviours of concern, a booklet of 11 sample case scenarios has been collated to provide suggestions to help you manage the different cases in the community.

Video Resources

To help mental health/dementia care professionals cement learning concepts and demonstrate application of skills, two localised videos have been produced that focus on ‘Engaging Resistant Clients’ and ‘De-escalating Conflicts’ via a total of 6 case scenarios. Watch them here.



 

 

You may find more video resources at our Dementia-Friendly Singapore YouTube.


Webinars

We have also organised online learning webinars to share best practices such as Dementia-Friendly Environment Design and inviting care professionals to share experiences. Learn more here.

Based on feedback to AIC, most caregivers do not know where to search nor have time to read through the many resources. As such, AIC has put together a top 5 curated list of resources for caregivers which you can share with them. While the top 5 curated resources provide quick help, we do recognise that partners may need support in sieving out the relevant resources for the caregivers. Complementing the top 5 resources, a consolidated listing of resources has also been pulled together to address the varied needs of the caregivers.
