About the course

The number of older people with alcohol-related cognitive impairment (ARCI) has increased significantly over the past decade due to rising rates of alcohol misuse in this population, and it is often mistaken for other forms of dementia. This course aims to improve knowledge, skills, and confidence in the assessment and care of people with this condition.

Learners will improve their diagnostic skills by focussing on the distinct clinical features of ARCI. They will learn to make quality assessments and identify appropriate interventions and referral pathways in order to reduce risk associated with alcohol use disorders and improve health and social outcomes.

Learners will practice formulating a tailored approach to cognitive rehabilitation to improve independence and provide integrated care for their patients. Common challenges to assessment and intervention will be also be discussed.
