Final impact report of the Delivering Dignity Programme.
Our Delivering Dignity programme was launched in 2012, alongside our funding partners, the Burdett Trust for Nursing, with the aim of demonstrating how innovative research can protect and enhance the dignity of older people, and improve their healthcare experience.
Six projects were selected for funding, and each drew to a close during 2014. For further information about each project, please click on the links below.
At our Annual Conference on 26th March 2015, we were pleased to be able to launch 'Telling the Story', Impacts of the Delivering Dignity Programme in Scotland, the final impact report of the Delivering Dignity Programme.
While each detailed final report is also available on this page, the Impact Report tells the story of each project in a clear and accessible format.
