This Facilitator Guide is a comprehensive education program covering core dementia knowledge suitable for health professionals from all disciplines who care for people with dementia.

The guide utilises and compliments the content of the DTSC’s core education modules to provide educators or senior clinicians with a prepared workshop or collection of education sessions.

The modules are designed to be delivered either as a full day workshop or as six, hour long education sessions which each build upon the previous session.

The suggested six sessions are:

Session 1: Overview of dementia
Session 2: Diagnosing dementia
Session 3: Treatment and intervention options 1
Session 4: Treatment and intervention options 2
Session 5: Philosophy of care
Session 6: Therapeutic communication and Dementia friendly environments

Within each module, reference is made to an accompanying PowerPoint presentation and these can be downloaded Here.

The core modules are also available and can be downloaded Here
