Improve your recognition and management of dementia

e-Dementia covers the knowledge and skills needed to deliver individual, compassionate care to people living with dementia. It is suitable for nurses, healthcare assistants, doctors and domestic/clerical staff who work anywhere in the world.


A high-quality dementia course for practitioners globally

The programme explores a range of topics, including:

  • understanding dementia
  • supporting people to live well with the condition
  • communicating with people affected by dementia
  • supporting families
  • end-of-life care

e-Dementia focuses in particular on the psychological and social aspects of the condition. It features many video interviews involving people dealing with dementia, which provide valuable insights into the condition. Interactive exercises also allow you to reflect on the learning and consider the role you can play in improving dementia care.

Drawing on the latest global research and best practice in this field, this high-quality dementia course has been developed by researchers from the University of Bradford, which was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize 2015 for its work on dementia. The authors are all experts in adult learning theory.


Easy online access

e-Dementia is accessible online so you can study at your own pace and fit the training around your busy working life.



eIntegrity programmes are developed by NHS Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme (HEE e-LfH). 

The programmes are high quality self-directed learning programmes.  They are designed to support training and CPD and are excellent resources alongside other traditional teaching methodologies.  They have been developed by the UK NHS for use in the NHS.  However, many of the programmes have international relevance, particularly the specialty training programmes which are often mapped to UK specialty training curricula.
