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

1.  Define stigma and how it relates to those that have dementia and those that care for them.

2.  Appreciate the global costs of dementia.

3.  Understand the statistics of how many people have dementia, the projections for future diagnoses, and the age most commonly reported for those with the disease.

4.  Review the statistics about those that conceal the diagnosis and those that are treated differently because they revealed the disease.

5.  Become familiar with the different organizations in countries around the world, what they do to help the dementia community, and what goals they have set for the future.
