Recognition of the trajectory of the disease and the challenges associated with assisting people to maintain as much independence as possible, through the stages of dementia, is a key focus of a modern health and social care system. This module aims to develop the skills required of an advanced practitioner capable of autonomous working within their practice setting. 

You will build on your understanding of Dementia as an ‘impairment’, differentiate between approaches and models of care, understand the barriers to the maintenance of personhood and apply evidence to practice appropriate to your health or social care context.
