Overview

The U-First!® Framework is a person-centred approach to looking at the whole person and is built upon the P.I.E.C.E.S.™ education program for health care providers with a clinical and leadership role within the team. U-First!® helps to develop a common knowledge base, language and approach to caring for people with behavioural changes by increasing learners’ ability to:

• Understand the person living with dementia, or other cognitive impairment, and the associated behaviour changes
• Work as a team to develop individualized support strategies

Benefits of U-First!®

• Increase awareness of causes of behaviour changes and how to respond in a safe and helpful way;
• Identify supportive, person-centred care strategies;
• Feel more confident in caring for someone with dementia or other cognitive impairment;
• Reduce stress and increase job satisfaction for all members of the team.

Who should attend?

U-First!® is an innovative, trademarked dementia education program for all members of a care team that are supporting people with behavioural changes caused by dementia or other cognitive impairment. Learners are health care staff and students who are, or will be, providing direct care to individuals living with dementia as well as their care partners, family and friends.
