Abstract ENGLISH ABSTRACT Title: The perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants on care-related prevention concerning people with dementia: a mixed methods approach. Background: Because of the growing number of people with dementia, care-related prevention activities done by nurses and certified nursing assistants will become increasingly important to prevent complications and maintain an acceptable quality of life. Currently it’s unknown what the perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants towards care-related prevention in dementia care are. Aim: To gain insight into the perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants towards care-related prevention so care-related prevention for people with dementia can be further improved in the future. Research question: How do nurses and certified nursing assistants working in home care, residential or nursing homes perceive care-related prevention concerning people with dementia? Method: A mixed methods approach with survey research and individual semi-structured interviews. First, secondary analyses were done on existing survey data collected in 2011 on a sample of 206 nurses and certified nursing assistants. Second, in March-May 2014 12 individual semi-structured interviews were conducted to embellish the quantitative results. Results: From this study three concepts related to the perceptions of nurses and CNAs towards care-related prevention activities emerged: attitude, knowledge and skills and the future. Nurses and certified nursing assistants think care-related prevention is a task of their profession. They experience insufficient knowledge and skills and they like to devote more time to care-related prevention in the future. Conclusion: Nurses and certified nursing assistants perceive care-related prevention to be part of their profession. They however express the need for more education on care-related prevention, preferably in a classroom setting. In the future, nurses and certified nursing assistants like to devote more time to care-related prevention and e-health can support this. Recommendations: Additional training of nurses and certified nursing assistants focused on their different needs and use of e-health.
