Dementia is a global health problem, placing pressure upon health and social care systems and budgets and drastically changing the lives of partners and families of those affected. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates there are currently 35.6 million people living with dementia, a number that will double by 2030 and triple by 2050 (WHO, 2012). Dementia has already had a significant impact on society, and this will only increase.
This course will help you to address the global challenge of dementia. It has a strong focus on integrative collaborations and partnerships as a way to reduce barriers between services and to provide seamless care for people living with dementia. You will learn about communication and compassion, and how you can help the person living with dementia to maintain independence, control, and a good quality of life. We will also consider what happens at the end of life. There is currently no cure for dementia and the final phase of life can be a challenge, not just for the person living with dementia, but also for their family and other people around them.
The course will build as a narrative through six modules, each one using what has been taken from the previous modules. Each will be badged separately and an E-Certificate for successful completion to a standard will be awarded.
This course is suitable for anybody who is interested in dementia and its effects on society, culture, and economics, including health and social care professionals, policy makers, and families of people with dementia.

Welcome to Memory and Movies. Someone once said that memory is fascinating because sometimes we forget what we want to remember, sometimes we remember what we want to forget, and sometimes we remember events that never happened or never happened the way we remember them. I want to show you how memory works, why it sometimes fails, and what we can do to enhance memory function, especially as we get older. Rather than covering all aspects of human memory, I will provide an introduction to the scientific study of memory by focusing on a select group of topics that hold widespread popular appeal.
