BACKGROUND: Dementia care mapping and person centred care are well-accepted as processes for improving care and well-being for persons with dementia living in the residential setting. However, the impact of dementia care mapping and person centred care on staff has not been well researched. OBJECTIVES: The impact of person centred care and dementia care mapping compared to each other and to usual dementia care on staff outcomes was examined in terms of staff burnout, general well-being, attitudes and reactions towards resident behavioural disturbances, perceived managerial support, and quality of care interactions. DESIGN: A cluster-randomised, controlled trial. SETTINGS: The study was conducted between 2005 and 2007 in 15 residential aged care sites in the Sydney metropolitan area, Australia, with comparable management structures, staffing mix and ratios, and standards of care. PARTICIPANTS: 194 consenting managers, nurses, therapists and nurse assistants working in the participating sites.
