Course Description

After attending the course, it is aimed that delegates will have an improved understanding of:

  • The features that distinguish early stages of neurodegenerative dementia in people under 65 from the worried well or the effects of depression or anxiety.  
  • The diagnostic processes that lead to the recognition of Alzheimer’s disease, the frontotemporal dementias and other, rarer types of dementia in people aged under 65.
  • The support that is available to people with young onset dementia after diagnosis.

Past students have said...

“Brilliantly engaging lecturing style. Excellent breadth of cases. Very well presented and helpful talk. Courses like this always provoke learning or thinking about topics from a different perspective and that is very valuable particularly if you've been practising for a while and might be a bit set in your ways.”

“Good combination of talks, representing whole pathway from diagnosis to care home.”
