Bespoke training in person-centred dementia care for your team or your organisation

The Association for Dementia Studies team, led by Professor Dawn Brooker, have a track record in providing consistently high quality education. As a multidisciplinary team from a wide variety of professions we are able to create a training package that meets the needs of your team/workforce. Training can be delivered at a location that is convenient to your employees. During the contracting process we will work with you to ensure that we understand the learning outcomes that you require from the training and the course will be developed to meet these outcomes. 

Examples of bespoke courses that we currently have running:

Leading person-centred services for people living with dementia

This 4-6 day course is delivered in two-day blocks over a number of months, with approximately one month spacing between each block. 

This enables the use of an Action Learning approach to ensure that learners have the opportunity to put into practice what they are learning in each block. The course enables learners to reflect on ways of developing their service through exploring current thinking on person-centred care, policy, research and best practice. They will be empowered to achieve change through application of the VIPS framework. 

This course is aimed at people with operational responsibility for the management of care in addition to strategic and policy leaders. We believe in creating change from the leadership level and then helping it filter through the system.

Specialist Practice in Dementia Care

This 6 day course is delivered in two- or three-day blocks over a number of months, with approximately one month spacing between each block. 

This enables the use of an Action Learning approach to ensure that learners have the opportunity to put into practice what they are learning in each block. 

This course is aimed at people who have responsibility for developing care plans or providing day-to-day care to people with dementia.
