Graduates will have a range of knowledge and perspectives, and the ability to engage with primary research literature across disciplines, to inform their professional and personal support for the needs of people with dementia.
As expectations increase around person-centred care, and decision making informed by knowledge of dementia and the ability to evaluate published evidence, a variety of professional and leadership opportunities may become available for those with postgraduate qualifications in dementia.
The rising prevalence of dementia is creating new challenges and a pressing need for change in the way our systems and practices support people who live with dementia. This Dementia program from University of Tasmania will equip you with the expertise to lead transformation, based on the latest evidence.
We anticipate career outcomes incorporating thorough knowledge of dementia and its effects, depending on the student's background, and drawing on the research literature to inform practice and design. These may include:
- Specialist roles and policy input for residential care or community facilities
- Government or private roles dealing with policy and governance related to people with dementia and their carers
- Roles that lead, inform and design practice around care, with a strong person-centred focus
- Augmented clinical skills for students with a health-professional background, with an emphasis on evidence-based practice and clinical redesign
