Dementia Policy and Care Coordination CAD208


This unit builds on first year knowledge surrounding ageing and aged and dementia care services, policies and models. By critically engaging with the evidence bases supporting policy, you will learn to critique contemporary services, policies and models. You will contrast the different perspectives of consumers, service providers, representative groups and government towards ageing, aged and dementia care policy and services. You will be able to explain how a range of professionals are able to work collaboratively to facilitate care for persons with dementia and their family members, and analyse the individual, interprofessional and organisational barriers that impede care approaches.
