Summary: The long-term care sector is a complex adaptive system receiving input from multiple stakeholders and levels, making implementation of new practices challenging. Culture change is most effective when change is targeted at all system levels (i.e., individual, organisational, socio-political) in an integrated way. Drawing on culture change work conducted by the Partnerships in Dementia Care (PiDC) Alliance, this presentation identifies specific strategies and recommendations for targeting change at multiple levels.
