Literature suggests that quality of life (QOL), quality of care (QOC) and Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) can be improved by relatively simple and inexpensive person-centred approaches to nursing care practices (PCC) and modifications to physical environment (PCE). Most research on this topic is observational and few randomised controlled trials have included an economic evaluation of PCC and PCE together. The PerCEN study aims to confirm the value of evidencebased nursing by evaluating the efficacy and cost effectiveness of implementing PCCand PCE in residential dementia care services. This article describes the PerCEN study protocol (ANZCTR 12608000095369).
