FutureLearn Course: Dementia and the Arts: Sharing Practice, Developing Understanding and Enhancing Lives

Explore, challenge and shape your perceptions of dementia through science and the creative arts in this free online 4-week course, CPD certified; accredited by the RSPH.

Why join the course?

Creating a society that supports and includes those of us who are living with a dementia is a major challenge - and opportunity. In this course you will discover how the arts can create a common ground between people, and in doing so, learn what we can all do to improve the quality of life and care for people living with different dementias.

Each of the four weeks will showcase current best practice, explain the limits of our current understanding, and set ambitious goals for enhancing the lives of anyone affected by one of these conditions.


This course is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and is recognised by its CPD recognition scheme. Learners who choose to upgrade will earn 8 CPD points on successful completion.
