Free dementia education goes global

Free dementia education goes global

Understanding Dementia is divided into three primary themes: ‘the brain’, ‘the diseases’ and ‘the person’, and includes basic brain anatomy, pathology, dementia research, risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, medical management, living with dementia, progression and staging, palliation, behaviours and therapeutic approaches.

MOOC co-ordinator Dr Carolyn King (pictured at today’s launch) has managed all aspects of course development and delivery.

“We have tailored the course design, presentation and content at a level that we feel will be broadly appealing,” Dr King said. “The material is delivered by experts in the field of dementia including neuroscientists, health scientists, clinicians, dementia care professionals, personal carers and people with dementia.”
