Dementia Academy

About Dementia courses


Our Dementia Academy offers 3 distinct areas of training: in dementia, Alzheimer's, and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Our Dementia MasterClass covers all dementias across prevention, diagnosis and care, and is designed for secondary care clinicians including nurses, old age psychiatry consultants and registrars.

Our new Alzheimer's MasterClass is designed specifically for those who are already dementia specialists and want to deepen their knowledge and specialism. Delegates should come to debate the cutting edge in Alzheimer’s disease and immerse themselves in the literature and then to apply that knowledge practically through quality improvement (QI) projects, research projects or even business cases afterwards. These projects form a core part of the overall course, and delegates must complete all aspects of module 1, the inter-module project, and module 2 to gain their certificate.

Finally, we are trialling a digital MCI course with a built-in quality improvement project suited to a broad spectrum of healthcare practitioners for the first time this year.
