University of Manchester
Dementia Care APIMH
Service development and evidence-based guidelines continuously highlight the need for multidisciplinary, multi-agency dementia care services that are accessible, flexible, inclusive and enabling. Importantly, such services and care must be driven by the needs of clients and their carers. It is vital, therefore, that such services are developed and delivered by staff appropriately prepared with relevant expertise, knowledge and skills.
This part-time, multi-disciplinary, practice-focused educational programme aims to equip students with the advanced knowledge and skills necessary to offer high standard, evidence-based interventions that promote the well-being, personhood and empowerment of people living with dementia and their significant others and to act as agents of change contributing to research, service development and leadership in this area of practice.
The programme is delivered by internationally and nationally renowned, published experts in the field, experienced dementia care practitioners, people who are living with dementia and former students, many of whom now operate at senior levels within dementia care services.
The programme involves attendance at the University for one day per week during term-time. Students are required to identify a suitable practice supervisor/mentor to oversee any clinical and/or practice work required for the programme and pathway.
