Dementia Studies (Training in Dementia Care)
At certificate level the focus is on developing the skills required in order to effectively deliver existing person centered care training materials and students will learn to use feedback and reflection as a means of developing the training they deliver and their own skills as a trainer. At the diploma level students will engage with the full process of devising and delivering training from assessing training needs and costing training to researching and developing appropriate training materials and programmes of study. They will also engage with approaches to assessing the efficacy of training in terms of bringing about sustainable change in practice. At Masters level students will develop a proposal for a research project related to an area of training in dementia care.
