About the course

The interdisciplinary Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia provides healthcare professionals with the skills to expertly care for a person with dementia from diagnosis to end-of-life. Taking a biopsychosocial approach, with expert lecturers and facilitators from a range of academic and clinical backgrounds, the course content includes dementia presentations, assessments, sub-types and differentials; restorative and adaptive cognitive and non-cognitive interventions; a strong focus on communication, ethical approaches and care planning; translation of evidence to clinical practice; and reflection on legislative, policy and societal influences on dementia care across health and social care settings. At all times the emphasis is on critical appraisal of research evidence, and knowledge of current policy and societal influences, and how these translate into the best possible care for the person with dementia in real-world settings. The Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia can be taken over one or two academic years (9-20 months).
