Training in communication skills for informal carers of people suffering from dementia: a cluster randomised clinical trial comparing a therapist led workshop and a booklet

This study evaluates whether a short training workshop in communication techniques is more effective than an information booklet for improving communication skills in informal carers of people suffering from dementia. 30 informal carers were allocated to the workshop sessions and 15 to the booklet. Outcome measures included awareness of communication strategies; perceived frequency of communication breakdown at home, and the associated level of distress; general stress; and consumer satisfaction.
