Dementia Awareness Training: Stand By Me - Dementia

Through video dramatisation, learners can follow dementia case studies across the patient journey diagnosis of dementia, from diagnosis to hospital care. Each video provides the opportunity for reflection on the learners own practice, the challenges faced in their roles and the challenges within their organisation.

Each of the video is embedded in a set of reflective questions based on the VIPS Framework, giving the learners the opportunity to reflect on their own practice, the challenges they face in their roles and the practice within their organisations.

Additional videos provide detailed factual information on person-centred care, the nature and different types of dementia and the different ways the symptoms of dementia can be managed.
