About the course

This one-day masterclass will provide clinicians with the knowledge and skills to support dementia sufferers approaching their end of life.

The course will focus on the special needs of people with dementia, in many cases made more challenging by ill health. By the end of the day learners will feel confident in having early conversations about advanced decision-making as well as facilitating care planning at the end of life.

The learning outcomes and curriculum map to the End of Life Care Core Skills Education and Training Framework (Health Education England, 2017).
