MSc in Professional Practice (Dementia Care) – University of Surrey

A pathway of learning is available to enable specialist workers in dementia care to enhance their practice with people living with a dementia and their family carers. An attractive feature of the pathway is that it is strongly practice orientated and draws on student’s professional experience and expertise to help them develop effective strategies and interventions. The pathway offers a flexible approach to learning that can fit with the working life of most people using modules delivered by both Dementia Care Matters and University of Surrey.
