Current approaches hardly take the person behind the nurse, with his/her attitudes towards aging and dementia, into account as a part of the interaction with the demented person. This gap is filled by the present study conducted in Switzerland. On one hand data are collected concerning the nurses’ attitudes towards people with dementia, by using the German version of the Dementia Attitudes Scale (DAS). On the other hand the relationship between the nurses’ attitudes and their behavior towards people with dementia is studied. This is done by analyzing videotaped interaction sequences with the examination instrument ‘Structural Analysis of Social Behavior’ (SASB). Results show that the nurses’ attitudes towards people with dementia are mostly positive. Furthermore, it was noticed that the more positive the nurses’ attitudes towards dementia were, the more positive was their behavior towards people with dementia as well. Based on these findings the authors are currently developing interaction-oriented teaching concepts that aim to complement hitherto existing ones.
