Leadership in Person-Centred Care

This course is aimed at current or potential future managers or leaders of a dementia care organisation, health and social care services, charities or businesses. For further information and dates of when this will be delivered please see the flyer.

Effective leadership in person-centred care is fundamental for the ability of an organisation to deliver services that work for people living with dementia. This module is designed to introduce a person-centred model of dementia care and evidence-based care (Brooker, 2007).

Students will be enabled to critically analyse the services they provide to people with dementia. It will introduce students to new developments in policy and research in dementia care. Critical thinking around person-centred care will be developed to enable students to explore ways of changing service and care provision. Students will be empowered to achieve this through engagement with and application of the VIPS framework and audit tool (Brooker 2007). Students attending this module will be expected to currently be, or a potential future, manager or leader of a dementia care organisation, health and social care service, charity or business.

This module is an optional module within the MSc Advancing Practice.
