CEU Course Description

This course was developed from the Alzheimer's Disease International report which provides background on stigma and dementia, shares results from a worldwide survey conducted with people with dementia and caregivers on their personal experiences of stigma, and highlights best practices in the field of dementia and makes recommendations which could help reduce stigma.  Also included in the report are a selection of essays from those with expertise or experience relevant to the topic. 

CEU Course Objectives
