These online courses can both be studied from The Wicking Centre in Tasmania. They are highly recommended and informative courses aimed at helping you understand more about “Dementia”

 The University of Tasmania’s Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Understanding Dementia, is an easily accessible online course that builds upon the latest in international research on dementia. It’s free and anyone can enrol.

The ageing of human populations across the globe has contributed to dementia being identified as one of the public health issues of the 21st century.

The MOOC curriculum addresses this health issue by drawing upon the expertise of neuroscientists, clinicians and dementia care professionals.

These professionals are from both the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre and beyond.

Since 2013, 140,000 people have enrolled in the course from more than 180 countries.
