National Dementia Education Programme: Early Identification of Memory Problems in the Older Person e learning Programme

HSeLanD is the Health Services e-Learning and Development service and contains over 130 online learning programmes, resources, assessment & planning tools.

The Early Identification of Memory Problems in the Older Person e learning Programme is a short online course which introduces participants to the experience of those with memory problems. The programme adopts a person-centred approach to care, highlighting the need to plan care with the maximum possible participation of the person with memory problems and his or her significant others. This is achieved by emphasising that assessment and care should be aimed at identifying a person’s strengths and capacities to maintain independence and self-determination for as long as possible.
