Dementia: A Person-Centred Approach (L6/L7 CPD unit)

Take this short CPD course at either undergraduate or postgraduate level to improve your knowledge and practice of person-centred dementia care.

Course overview

Our part-time Dementia: A Person-Centred Approach CPD unit is aimed at people working with those living with dementia who wish to develop their skills and knowledge to provide high-quality care and support.

You will:

  • critically explore best practice, informed by a person-centred perspective;
  • examine current research evidence, theory and first-person experiences of people living with dementia;
  • become able to critically reflect on your own practice;
  • plan where changes can be made to your practice/area of work to enhance the care, support and wellbeing of people who are living with dementia.

Teaching will be delivered by experts in the field – including people who are living with dementia – and will make use of both face-to-face and online methods.

You will be required to attend face-to-face sessions at The University of Manchester on seven days across the unit. You will be able to access the course materials and e-resources from The University of Manchester Library throughout the course.
