Dementia v3 E-Learning Course

The lives of people with Dementia can be improved through early diagnosis. This will allow more time for treatment and for people with Dementia to make choices about their future care whilst they still have the mental capacity to do so. Our highly interactive Dementia E-Learning course focuses on the recognition, care and treatment of Dementia. It also includes the impact of the Care Act 2014 and contributes to the Care Certificate Standards and Skills for Care Dementia Units.

Dementia v3 Aims

The National Dementia Strategy, launched in 2009, aimed to improve the quality of life for people with Dementia and their Carers. It focused on:

  • Raising awareness and understanding of Dementia
  • Early diagnosis and support
  • Maximising well-being by promoting high quality care and support by a well trained workforce

This has led to developments such as the Dementia Challenge; the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friendly Community Programme and the Dementia Action Alliance.

With the introduction of the Care Certificate in April 2015, learning outcomes, competences and standards of care are clearly set out to help ensure that Healthcare and Social Care Workers provide caring, compassionate and good quality care.

Our course contributes to the Care Certificate Standards 3,5,6,7,9 and 10.

It also contributes to many of the learning outcomes within the Skills for Care Dementia Units which focus on understanding the experience of Dementia and enabling individuals to live well.
