Caring for those living with Alzheimer's Disease or a related dementia can be challenging work and requires the use of skills and techniques designed to safely support these individuals. The need for professionals with expertise in dementia care is growing rapidly as the prevalence of dementia continues to increase world-wide. In response, The University of Wyoming is offering a Dementia Care Certificate for healthcare professionals working with individuals with dementia. This certificate is an online self-paced program designed to fit within healthcare professionals' busy schedules. The modules are previously recorded WyGEC workshops, online trainings, and webinars that were taught by experts in the field.
This certificate will be offered for free to anyone who completes it by June 30, 2015 and for a fee of $30 per level for anyone who completes after this date.
This is a tool designed to assist healthcare institutions in Wyoming with finding a speaker to talk about topics related to geriatrics at their workshops, conferences, seminars, or other events of educational nature. Once the request is received, WyGEC will review and work on matching it with an appropriate speaker.
