The training includes online micro-courses; a catalogue of readings, help sheets as well as access to other training and resources.

These new 15 minute micro-courses provide staff with a basic working knowledge about the brain and the common types of dementia, introduces the principles of person-centred care and communication, and even comes with a certificate of completion.
