The Best Practice course is accredited by both the City and Guilds and the Royal College of Nursing. Viewpoint is proud to be working in partnership with the University of Stirling since 2012. 

 

From the DSDC:

The Best Practice in Dementia Care Learning Programme is a learning resource for all frontline health and social care staff which was first developed by the DSDC in 2007. The learning programme has enabled learners across the UK and internationally to develop their existing skills, gain new knowledge and improve their care of people with dementia. It is designed to empower learners, increasing both levels of confidence and their perception of their value within the care setting.
