Who is it for?
This course is aimed at health and social care professionals, voluntary sector practitioners and those looking to develop an academic career focusing on dementia and dementia care.
Overview of content:
What is it about?
This module aims to provide students with a coherent understanding of the theoretical, policy and legislative context for psychosocial approaches used in dementia care and knowledge of a range of key interventions on offer, the potential benefits and appreciation of the evidence-base supporting decisions to employ such interventions. Emphasis is placed on broadening the range of approaches students might take when responding to ‘behaviours that challenge’ and people with dementia, whilst also exploring wider outcomes such as enhanced ‘wellbeing’ and positive patient experience.
Mode of assessment
Module related knowledge will be assessed through completion of a 2000 word assignment (70%) and a presentation (30%).
