Older Person Rehabilitation

Since 2018 we have introduced two new Dementia Programmes which provide healthcare professionals with the skills to expertly care for a person with dementia from diagnosis to end-of-life. Interdisciplinary studies are included and similiar to the OPR programmes, they are flexible and practical in their delivery.

Our programmes are available to all healthcare disciplines and can be studied in different streams:  CPD modules, Postgraduate Certificate or MSc.  Each stream is linked so you can begin with a CPD module and use your credits towards the PG Cert, or begin with the PG Cert and progress to the MSc.  You can also exit at any time with credit for the modules you have taken.
