The Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre at the University of Tasmania has released enrolments for their free ‘Understanding Dementia’ MOOC’s course.
The course starts on 7 July 2020 and is divided into 5 modules; covering:
- the Brain
- the disease
- the person.
Since 2013, the Understanding Dementia course has received over 240,000 enrolments global. Professionals, carers, family members, people living with dementia and those interested in dementia are invited to learn about the diseases that cause dementia, how the condition affects the person living with it, and how we can deliver the best quality care.
The course is not only about learning; those interested can share their own lived experiences with other participants.
Understanding Dementia is free and closes on 18 September 2020.
