Session Overview

This interactive session gives participants the opportunity to look at and work through real life situational experiences they may face when working with people with dementia and also how to recognise/diagnose dying at end of life using the communication skills needed in these scenarios.

 It offers the opportunity to practice in a realistic, safe and supportive environment, using audio visual equipment which enables participants to observe, discuss, debrief and reflect on individual actions, therefore optimising the learning experience.
