About the course
The module comprises 5 credits and lasts for ten weeks.
It includes two parts: treatment/attitude in practice, and medico-legal aspects, respectively.
In this module, you develop your skills and ability to find solutions to the problems that arise when the dementia patient's autonomy decreases and he/she becomes increasingly dependent on a sympathetic environment. Many of the challenges in dementia care are about seeing the big picture and not "medicalise" problems, or difficulties to be solved by measures other than purely medical.
