Dementia Training

Preparing your staff for the potential challenges of their job is key not only to their own success, but to the preservation of patient safety, dignity, and quality of life. It is for this reason that dementia training courses are a core requirement for all healthcare employees working towards completion of the Care Certificate.

As dementia is an umbrella term for a wide range of symptoms resulting from the damage caused by brain diseases, it takes many forms. Dementia training for the NHS aims to familiarise staff with the characteristics of each type of dementia, and the impact cognitive impairment can have on an individual and their loved ones.

These dementia elearning, face-to-face training and distance learning resources include guidance on person-centred care, and the determination of consent. This involves identifying and overcoming barriers to routine tasks such as eating, drinking, and communicating, in order to ensure that the basic needs of an individual are met.

The CPD certified courses listed below can be filtered according to a range of requirements, making it easy to find one that meets your needs.
