As the number of elderly demented patients in Japan continues to increase,there is a greater need for improved nursing care specific to this population in Japanese communities and healthcare facilities. The purpose of this review was to consider the concepts of person-centred care and Dementia Care Mapping (DCM),and to describe trends in DCM research. The DCM method consists of a Behavioral Category Coding (BCC) and WIB(the scale of well-being and ill-being) value,as well as Personal Detraction Coding (PDC) and Positive Event recording (PER). All reviewed studies used BCC and WIB scores,and were located through the MEDLINE and CINAHL databases. The research papers reviewed were classified into 6 types : (1) reviews of the DCM,(2) validity and reliability studies,(3) evaluations of care interventions,(4) cross-sectional studies of DCM,(5) developmental evaluations and (6) applied DCM studies. These papers suggest that DCM has a role in practice development and research designed to improving the quality of life experience for people with dementia,and provide sufficient evidence to the efficacy of DCM and its utility in clinical nurse practice and Nursing research. DCM's advantages are that it is standardised,quality-controlled,and international,responsive to change,multidisciplinary and has an increasing research base.
