Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course from the University of Bradford will help you to understand that person-centred dementia care involves:
  • respecting the human rights of all people living with dementia, including their rights to dignity, liberty, privacy and to be treated in a humane way:
  • engaging with the person as a unique individual taking into account their life experience, unique abilities, interests, culture, likes, dislikes and needs;
  • taking the person's perspective and seeing the world through their eyes, including ensuring people living with dementia and their family carers are equal partners in decisions about their care;
  • providing a supportive and enabling physical and social environment.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
