Dementia Through Different Lenses is one in a series of dementia study days; reflecting an essential paradox within dementia care that although dementia is an illness, it is only by being able to understand dementia from the inside out that enables us to provide high quality care.

This course is aimed at you if you are working within a variety of settings and have a basic understanding of dementia care.

You are welcome to attend either one, some or all of the dementia study days.

Entry requirements

You must be a qualified practitioner.



This course will look at dementia within a broader context including the strengths and limitations of the disease model and the basic principles of person-centred dementia care.

The day will be led by Professor Richard Cheston (Professor of Dementia Research); Dr Gary Christopher (Senior Lecturer in Clinical and Neuropsychology), Professor Myra Conway (Associate Professor in Neurochemistry) and Rob Stewart (Senior Lecturer in Neuroimaging).
