Course Introduction

On this MSc Dementia Care you will examine contemporary thinking and analyse current care and services. Your goal will be to build an evidence base for best practice. We emphasise the importance of creative approaches to research and development. There may be opportunities to work with input from artists and designers, as well as from scientists, to develop treatments that focus on the link between creativity and health.

To this end, your studies at the Dementia Care Centre will include influences from a wide range of disciplines, including: psychology; design; music; nursing; hospitality. By drawing on these varied fields of knowledge, this approach will help you to drive innovative solutions to the challenges posed by dementia care. You will have opportunities to join projects and placements at progressive care homes, where you can help to design unique settings and services for people with dementia and their carers.

This course helps you to explore high-quality, ambitious, evidence-based solutions for improving the lives of people who suffer with dementia. Our aim is to empower you to become a positive leader in dementia care practice and service management.
