Dementia E-Learning

West Yorkshire & Harrogate Excellence Centre
Delivery Method: e-Learning

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) e-Dementia e-learning programme.

Designed in partnership with the University of Bradford this freely accessible learning e programme about dementia care has been recently re-designed to enhance the training and education of the health and care workforce in line with the Dementia Training Standards Framework. It focuses on the essential knowledge and skills needed to support and enable people living with dementia and their family carers to live as well as possible, wherever they live.

Who is it for?

e-Dementia will appeal to a wide range of health and social care workers and staff where it can provide self-paced learning and as a form of refresher training. It will also be of interest to those responsible for training and educating the health and care workforce where it could be used as part of induction and to structure reflective practice with individual staff and teams.

Users can dip into sections or undertake the whole programme.

New sessions added:

As part of the e-Dementia update, 14 new sessions have been added (12 sessions have been retired from the programme).
