The provision of dementia care is shaped by overarching policy at the local, national and international level. This advanced level subject will explore how policies and other factors influence the translation of evidence into practice by offering contemporary perspectives on how policy is implemented to drive equitable service provision for people with dementia. In CAD307 we will examine the role of policy in dementia care and outline ways to translate evidence into practice through knowledge translation and improvement science. Leadership skills are important to be able to change, influence and improve practice. For this reason, content will include a basic introduction to leadership theory. This is a core elective subject in the Bachelor of Dementia Care. This subject is also available to students from other courses, subject to meeting any prerequisites.
