What you'll study

The delivery of this module will be underpinned by core person centred values, with the aim of facilitating the development of a dementia-focused workforce.

In line with the Curriculum for Dementia Education (Higher Education Dementia Network, 2013) this module enables you to critically examine key concepts, processes, theories and best practices of dementia care in various health and social care environments. You'll develop a critical understanding of the experience of dementia and the varying effect of biological/physiological, psychological, and social processes on this experience.

You'll reflect on your own performance and identify opportunities with your environment to positively influence the individual's experience of dementia and that of their families and carers.
