Studying Dementia at the University College Cork

The interdisciplinary Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia provides healthcare professionals with the skills to expertly care for a person with dementia from diagnosis to end-of-life. Taking a biopsychosocial approach, with expert lecturers and facilitators from a range of academic and clinical backgrounds, course content includes dementia presentations, assessments, sub-types and differentials; restorative and adaptive cognitive and non-cognitive interventions; a strong focus on communication, ethical approaches and care planning; translation of evidence to clinical practice; and reflection on legislative, policy and societal influences on dementia care across health and social care settings. At all times the emphasis is on critical appraisal of research evidence, and knowledge of current policy and societal influences, and how these translate into best possible care for the person with dementia in real-world settings. The Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia can be taken over one or two academic years (9-20 months).

Dementia: Course:

The Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia is a blended learning programme, with some content provided online or via evening webinars, augmented by face-to-face lectures, tutorials, workshops and case-based learning. Workshops focus on peer-learning and skills practice (e.g. communication skills, capacity assessment, critical appraisal).

Students take taught modules to the value of 30 credits (two core 10-credit modules and 1 x 10-credit or 2 x 5-credit elective modules) incorporating approximately 150 total hours of structured contact time, provided face-to-face, via webinars or online. Most classes are held in two-day blocks during weekdays. In addition to structured contact time, students perform approximately 450 hours of self-directed learning, submitting module assignments and reports.

Following successful completion of the examinations for the Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia, subject to the approval of the Programme Team, a student may opt to transfer to the MSc in Dementia, with exemptions for modules already taken within the Postgraduate Certificate. This will not require a new PAC application by the student. Preliminary transfer requests should be made to the Programme Administrator, Ms Lorraine Crossan.

A student previously graduated with the Postgraduate Certificate in Dementia, within the preceding five years, and subject to approval by the Programme Team, may register for the MSc in Older Person Rehabilitation, with exemptions granted for modules taken within the previous five years. This will not require a new PAC application by the student. Preliminary requests should be made to the Programme Administrator, Ms Lorraine Crossan.
