Dementia Education

About The Dementia Education Project (Completed March 2013)

The BC Dementia Education Project was an initiative that ran from 2010 to 2013 that worked for and with physicians to help achieve optimal care for patients suffering from dementia. UBC CPD with support from the Ministry of Health Services, Pharmaceutical Services Division, Alzheimer’s Drug Therapy Initiative, developed family physician and general practitioner focused education on dementia.

Due to the aging population, physicians will be handling increasing numbers of patients with dementia over the coming years. Our education programs integrated the clinical practice guidelines on cognitive impairment and are designed to assist physicians in this process by giving them the tools and knowledge that they need to manage patients with dementia.

This webpage is intended to serve as a central resource for our educational initiatives relating to dementia. We have links to helpful tools and other resources and to documents with more information about caring for patients with dementia.
