Event description

Description

The University of Bradford in partnership with the Department of Health are offering this FREE 2-day course for those who wish to develop knowledge, skills and confidence in primary care for people affected by dementia. It aims to enhance skills in assessment and diagnosis of dementia and familiarity with evidence-based, post-diagnostic psychosocial and pharmacological supports for people affected by dementia. Enhanced expertise in the primary care of dementia is key to ensuring early, person-centred diagnosis and timely post-diagnostic support.

There will be opportunities for group discussion, networking and reflection on how the event content will support your practice in primary care.
