Dementia care in the hospital setting

This module is designed to enable health and social care staff working in an acute care or community hospital setting to develop the knowledge, skills and awareness necessary to provide a quality, person-centred service for people with dementia and their families and carers. For further information and details of when it will be delivered please see this flyer.

The focus of the module will be to encourage person-centred approaches across systems to improve and enhance the experience of the person with dementia, their supporters and carers. This will be achieved through increasing knowledge and understanding of dementia within staff groups, exploration of how to meet the needs of people with dementia who are also in ill health, empowering staff to work with colleagues and carers to support best use of resources and timely discharge to the person's home and community, and to provide leadership and strategic focus around the challenges and opportunities of providing dignity and choice for patients with dementia.

This module can be taken on its own or in combination with another module to gain an Advanced Diploma in Dementia Care.
