SoN Research Program Adopted and Translated into Two Languages!
The STAR program, an evidence-based intervention to train direct care staff to effectively manage and reduce the problems experienced by persons with dementia and other memory impairments, has recently been translated:
A Chinese version was created by one of the SoN visiting professors, Dr. Jing-Jy Sellin Wang, Associate professor Dept. of Nursing & Inst. of Gerontology, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan.
A Spanish version has been created by Dr. Jerson Laks, Associate Professor, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Both the DVD and the manual are now available and will be used to help professionals in these countries train others to improve the care of persons with dementia.
