Knowing the patient’ is something that nurses claim as a unique feature of their practice in a multi-disciplinary field and regard as their vehicle for delivering holistic care (Allen 2000). It is a claim that is being increasingly contested alongside calls for an exploration of its relationship to high quality patient care (Luker et al. 2000). A crucial dimension of this form of knowledge concerns who it is that holds the knowledge. Professional staff draw on the scientific and experiential knowledge base that they have accumulated over several years of professional education and practising with people with dementia.

Nurses working in primary care have an important role to play in the early identification of dementia, initiating physical and neurological investigations, and arranging and delivering sessions on reality orientation, communication, self-maintenance and social involvement. Ward and Dewing (2001), among others, note that when older people are consulted in a sensitive and non-patronizing way, they can become valuable allies in identifying appropriate services and assisting nursing personnel to deliver them.

As a result, improvements in practice were made and new research swelled the volume of literature in the field (Arie and Jolley 1999). Alongside professional developments, a series of ‘scandals’ had a considerable impact. The first of these was the publication in 1967 of Barbara Robb’s book, Sans Everything: A Case to Answer, which documented highly distressing abuses in public institutions for the aged and included a number of chapters by experts suggesting reforms. In the wake of the book, regional hospital boards were charged with appointing committees made up of a doctor, a nurse and a lay member with experience of health service administration to investigate the allegations.
