In the Dementia course from The University of Hull Online, you’ll be empowered to challenge common thinking about dementia, and to develop person-centred approaches to working with people experiencing cognitive loss.
All while studying flexibly online – when and where it suits you.
What you learn
Designed to give you a critical understanding of dementia, this course will provide you with a deep insight into the experience of those living with dementia and their families. You will develop new critical thinking, giving you practical tools and the mindset to lead positive change.
- Study the effects of social exclusion, the relevance of participation and diversity. Critically challenge taken for granted models of care in order to promote a holistic, relationship-centred approach
- Explore biological, psychological and sociological frameworks which seek to explain the experience of dementia and develop a multi-disciplinary research perspective
- Create care plans focusing on the human rights and specific needs of people with dementia and put your new knowledge to practical use in real life situations
- Discover and share global perspectives which underpin the diagnosis with your peers online. Join a network of like-minded professionals who create change around the world.
How you're assessed
All assessment for the course is based on coursework and assignments submitted online. Your performance on the course will be evaluated through a range of methods including:
- Ongoing tutor and peer feedback
- Practical work, including group projects and discussion forums
- Written work, including case studies, care plans, reports and essays
Successful completion of this distance learning degree offers health, social work and social care professionals the potential to specialise in the field of dementia. We are also keen to help develop specialist knowledge and skills in people who currently volunteer in the field.
Gaining an insight into care provision and policy-making, from an explicitly ethical and human-rights perspective, will equip you with the knowledge you need to lead positive change and improve existing services for those living with dementia in your community.
