International Psychogeriatrics, 05/30/2012
Schepers AK et al. – The sense of competence in dementia care staff scale provides a useful and user–friendly means of measuring sense of competence in care staff. It has been developed using a robust process and has adequate psychometric properties. Further exploration of the construct and the scale's validity is warranted. It may be useful to assess the impact of training and perceived abilities and skills in dementia care.
