Offering free e-learning is one way of providing easy-access knowledge about dementia to various target groups across the nation. The practice-oriented nature of the topics and the variety of educational approaches used make the courses especially user friendly. “ABC Dementia – Care” involves e-learning for professional caregivers, with each module designed to cover a specific topic, such as dementia disorders, behavioural symptoms or communication. ABC Dementia for physicians, targets physicians in training, primarily within geriatrics, neurology, psychiatry and general practice.
In 2017 we worked to improve the backend technology for managing our more than 26,000 online users, in addition to developing a new online course aimed at hospital nurses called ABC Dementia for Hospitals, which we hope to launch at Dementia Days 2018.
