Course Description

This course is a follow on from our Dementia Awareness course, and takes the delegate deeper into the underpinning knowledge of the different dementias and their pathology. We begin with a review of memory function, then move onto a detailed look at the more common causes of dementia: Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, Lewy body, Frontal Temporal Dementias and Wernicke Korsakoff. We also discuss several other less common causes including HIV, Down’s dementia, Progressive Aphasic, and Dementia Pugilistica.

Ethical considerations in dementia care are discussed, such as truth telling, sexuality and consent issues.
