The teaching is a mixture of lectures, workshops and video sessions, covering subjects such as history taking, examination, bedside cognitive testing, formal cognitive testing and investigations. The course also covers Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy Bodies and rare forms of dementia.

The format for 2022 is going to be slightly different to pre-Covid courses, with a separate one-day virtual introductory course in April and then a two-day in person (with an online option) more advanced course in December.  Delegates can attend one, the other, or both.

Even if you are attending the online course, we expect you to be at all the sessions. One or two sessions may be recorded and posted afterwards, but a number of presentations contain potentially sensitive patient information, videos or images that we cannot post online. The afternoon sessions in particular are interactive.

Homerton has had an upgrade to its facilities over the COVID break, and we intend to make the most of the rooms available for smaller group interactive sessions after lunch. These will cover video and case discussions, and elements of psychiatric and neurological examination relevant to neurodegenerative disorders.
