About the course

The module includes 3 credits and lasts six weeks.

This module is, in addition to the introductory tasks, divided into three sections:

  • Palliative care in dementia
  • Symptom control
  • Liverpool Care Pathway

The module deals with important issues that are relevant for the end-of-life care of patients with dementia disorders. Patients with dementia disorders approaching the final stage of life have less ability to convey their thoughts and needs than cognitively healthy persons do. Therefore, those of us working in health care need to develop our ability to provide good care in the final stages of life to people with dementia disorders.
