Invitation for University of Worcester accredited double module “Advanced Practice in delivering Person-Centred Dementia Care”

The University of Worcester is inviting applicants to their accredited double module “Advanced Practice in delivering Person-Centred Dementia Care”. This masters-level module is aimed at staff who have responsibility for practice development in or with care homes and extra care housing. This is the first ever course to train professionals to deliver the Focused Intervention Training and Support (FITS) programme which is a proven way of effectively delivering psycho-social care in care homes and supported housing in response to complex needs and behaviours.

The module will equip participants to organise, prepare, deliver and critically review the teaching and supervision elements of the FITS into Practice programme in care home and extra-care housing organisations. Course participants must have significant experience of delivering training, education and professional development and be in a position to deliver training and support to care staff working in care homes and/or extra care housing organisations.
This first cohort could shape dementia care significantly in the future to deliver solid evidence based practice.
Applications close on the 26th September 2016.
