Abstract

A Chinese Dementia Specialist Education Program (CDSEP) was launched in the Greater Boston Area to educate Chinese American health care providers who lacked adequate dementia education and services. This program trained bilingual health care providers to identify, assess and serve people with dementia and their families, and raised dementia awareness in Chinese American communities. The ten-month follow-up survey documented that the sixteen graduates helped over 70 families and held 76 workshops and formal and informal discussions, reaching over 400 people. The CDSEP demonstrates that a "Train the Trainer" model is an effective approach for building dementia care capacity in community-based agencies, increasing outreach to people with dementia and their families, and for raising dementia awareness in bilingual and minority communities.
