Hospital-wide Dementia Friendly Training at UNC Hospitals Hillsborough Campus

Hospital-wide dementia-friendly training is well underway at UNC Hospitals Hillsborough Campus, where nearly two-thirds of all staff and providers who interact with patients have completed training. UNC Health Care is the first major health care system in the state with plans to deliver hospital-wide training to multiple partnering hospitals. After the Hillsborough pilot, the training program will expand to NC Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill, Pardee UNC Health Care in Hendersonville, and Wayne UNC Health Care in Goldsboro.
