Practical dementia diagnosis and care

This programme follows a life-course of dementia, starting with assessment then looking at management. It has a strongly clinical focus with practically- applicable clinical tools which can make a difference to daily practice and give real understanding to the many different biomarkers which have come on hugely in the past few years.

Previous courses were psychosocially motivated and included legislation, advocacy, nursing, and supporting carers and the new programme is a reflection of the audience, their learning needs, and the changing clinical landscape in dementia prevention, diagnosis and management.

Who is this course for?

This residential MasterClass, entitled “Practical dementia diagnosis and care”, is for primary and secondary care clinicians, including nurses, GPwERs, geriatricians, old age psychiatry consultants and registrars.
