Online Learning Resource About Dementia (e-learning for Healthcare / Department of Health, Dementia)

[A version of this item appears in: Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 2 Issue 12, July 2012].

Summary

An e-learning package has been developed by e-learning for Healthcare to train health and social care staff in the recognition, assessment and management of dementia and about the provision of high quality dementia care.

There are 10 sessions available in total about issues of relevance to dementia, including diagnosis of dementia and managing symptoms.

Only the first session is free, but this is relevant to the general public including anyone working in public environments such as shops, transport and banks. This free resource should help in raising general public awareness about dementia, removing the stigma and might be instrumental in helping bring about more dementia-friendly communities.
