RCPsych is very pleased to announce the release of a new free-access CPD eLearning module developed in partnership with NHS England: Improving access, experience and outcomes for people living with dementia from ethnic minority communities.
Currently, more than 25,000 older Black and ethnic minority people are living with dementia in England and Wales. This number is expected to double by 2026 and increase seven-fold by 2060, with the steepest increase in South Asian communities (Alzheimer’s Society, 2020).
Reports show that people from ethnic minority communities are less likely to get an early or ‘timely’ diagnosis, access to treatment or receive support when diagnosed. This module is designed to help improve the access to, experience of and outcomes from dementia care in England in order to close the health inequalities gap.
If you are a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, you can log in to this module straight away using the same username and password with which you access the members' area of the College website. Otherwise, all you need to do is register with the College.
