Overview

Cognitive rehabilitation is an important aspect of the overall management for patients with mild to moderate dementia, e.g. early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. This module provides participants an opportunity to adopt an evidence-based approach to manage elder patients with cognitive disorders. The pathophysiology of dementia and the impact on cognitive functions are addressed. The effects of ageing on brain function and the consequent functional, behavioral and psychosocial outcomes are explored. This module uses blended learning pedagogy and flexible scheduling for adult learners. The learning activities and assessment strategies will reflect workplace demands, upskill module participants and enhance service delivery.
