Abstract: Everyday technologies (ETs) like TVs, microwaves and automated telephone services are increasingly utilized in the home. While they can be helpful in many ways, they can present barriers to people who do not know how to utilize them. This is particularly true of persons with dementia, and yet little research has examined how to improve their understanding and use of ET. The present study sought to examine the applicability of a specific knowledge translation (KT) model to this context. The researchers provided healthcare professionals with a day-long training on how information about ETs can be effectively communicated to and utilized by people with dementia. Professionals later participated in focus group discussions and individual interviews. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected. The researchers concluded that the KT model of training was applicable to this context, and suggest that healthcare providers take a flexible approach when translating knowledge into assisting people with dementia to use ETs.
