The Many Faces of Dementia
Explore key issues in dementia care and research, through four less common forms
Dementia is one of the foremost priorities in global health and is estimated to affect over 44 million people worldwide. This has a huge impact on individuals and on society, so improvements in understanding, care and treatments are desperately needed. In this online course, you’ll discover key issues in dementia care and research. You’ll explore four less common forms of dementia, through the eyes of people affected by them. World-leading experts at UCL will show how research into the signs, stages, symptoms and causes of these forms can bring us closer to defeating dementia.
The only requirement is an interest in dementia, its effects on people and the brain.
We hope that this course will be of particular interest to:
- Anyone who works with people diagnosed with dementia
- People who have a friend or family member who has dementia
- People in the early stages of the disease
- Students with an interest in learning more about dementia
