The Dementia Care Degree Program is Australia's first degree specifically focused on dementia. It is available to domestic or international students, from carers to health professionals and anyone with an interest in learning more about dementia. It is direct-care orientated and you will develop specialist knowledge of dementia and dementia care to enable the delivery of best practice dementia care.
