The University of Northampton Dementia Research & Innovation Centre (NDRIC) is currently offering a University (Masters Level 7) module on person-centred and family focused approaches to dementia care.
Advanced Dementia Care is for leaders and managers in health and social care who are providing and delivering care to people living with dementia (PWD) and carers. Adopting a person-centred family focused approach, this module explores the contemporary evidence-base, recent policy developments, and innovations in dementia care practice.
The module material can also be accessed as stand-alone CPD study days.
This module has been specifically designed to enhance the contemporary knowledge and expertise of leaders and managers in health and social care provision who are providing services and delivering care to people living with dementia (PWD) and their carers.
The aim of the module is to further develop the knowledge of key staff who are working with people who are living with dementia and their carers in order to prepare them to lead in the development and transformation of informal social support networks and formal care pathways
