Dementia training resources

These training resources can be used by NHS Health Check trainers and practitioners to improve the quality of their delivery of the dementia component of the check. Materials can freely be added to and edited by trainers to meet their local training needs. 

The training resources cover all three mandated components of dementia;

1.   General awareness of the signs and symptoms of dementia

2.   Risk reduction, raising awareness that ‘what is good for your heart is good for your brain’.

3.   Signposting to places to find out more information about dementia.

These training resources particularly focus on the potential to use risk reduction messaging to introduce dementia as part of the NHS Health Check as the messages complement existing cardiovascular risk messaging. The resources also introduce practitioners to the specific NHS Health Check dementia leaflet, which can be used as part of the NHS Health Check appointment.
