Lewy Body Bitesize
Brand new to Lewy body dementia? Our Bitesize course of short talks from LBD experts will equip you with a solid grounding in one of the most common forms of dementia, as well as the confidence to appropriately support those living with it.
Fully virtual course
Our Lewy Body Bitesize is intended for anyone looking to develop a basic understanding of Lewy body dementia: what it looks like and how to diagnose it, effective management across different types of symptoms, and future treatment opportunities.
A collection of short talks spanning six to 15 minutes, the sessions can be watched all together or dipped in and out of, according to personal preference and interest.
Perfect for anyone working in neurology, medicine for the elderly or old age psychiatry, the course is also useful for therapists, those in nursing roles in hospital or the community, and could provide helpful baseline knowledge for those in general practice.
