    Health, Nursing and Midwifery: Dementia Education and Training

    The Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Healthcare Policy and Practice are committed to the rights of people with dementia to be fully involved in all aspects which impact upon their lives. All our courses are aligned to the Promoting Excellence Framework.

    We can work in partnership with you to design educational programmes that meet your workforce development needs. We can design and deliver bespoke courses, on or off campus, nationally or internationally. We have a state of the art ‘simulation’ learning environment at the Hamilton campus to engage participants to develop a deeper understanding of the person living with dementia, their family and caregivers. We believe that our interactive experiential approach provides a more impactful learning experience for participants.
