The Understanding Dementia Training Course provides an opportunity for health practitioners to reflect on current practices. It enables you to develop skills and knowledge regarding the understanding of common problems and how to address them.
You may choose simply to access this 1-day course, though ideally it would be followed up with our second dementia CPD workshop, 'Developing Skills in Working with People with Dementia'. The follow-up course develops the knowledge you've gained in this workshop, with a focus on more specific interventions and strategies.

People who work in general hospital or community settings often meet people accessing their services who have a diagnosis of dementia. When practitioners feel ill-equipped to understand the needs of dementia sufferers, this can pose problems, often resulting in a poor experience for both patients and their families. The Understanding Dementia Training Course aims to change this.
Any practitioner who comes across people who have dementia in general hospital or community settings will benefit from the Understanding Dementia Training Course.
