Overview

Find out how to better support people with dementia at the end of life

A range of research has shown that the end-of-life care needs of people with dementia, and their families, are poorly understood and inconsistently addressed.

An awareness of the psychosocial, physical and spiritual needs of the whole person is key to tackling this issue – something that this online course will give you.

You’ll develop the knowledge and understanding that will help you provide better quality support to – and enhance the wellbeing and dignity of – people with dementia towards the end of life. You’ll also learn to better communicate and co-ordinate care with their families.
