Although dementia is characterised by memory loss and other cognitive impairments, psychological and behavioural symptoms such as depression, delusions and wandering are also very common. These non-cognitive symptoms can severely affect quality of life both for people with dementia and for their carers.
This online course explains why non-cognitive symptoms occur in dementia, and how to assess and manage them. It shows how person-centred models of care can improve the experience of people living with dementia, and help health and social care professionals manage challenging behaviours.
The full course takes approximately 7 hours to complete and includes many case examples, video presentations, self-test quizzes and exercises, and links to evidence.
