Course Description

Cognition Communication Capacity & Rehabilitation

University College Cork (UCC)



This is a new and unique course, with no similar course available in Ireland or the UK. It is fully interdisciplinary – the specialist lecturers are from a range of disciplines and students learn with and from each other. There is a strong student-centred focus, with flexible timetabling, and blended learning to minimise work disruptions. The course combines lectures, case based learning, workshops and small group discussions. There is a selection of optional modules available so that students can build a tailored programme that matches their personal learning requirements.

In todays competitive workforce, continuous professional development is a key requirement of ongoing professional competency. CPD training aids career advancement and improves your confidence in treating patients. In this module, students will gain solid understanding and skills in cognition assessment, dementia syndromes, capacity assessment and communication disorders, with a focus on older people. As the population ages, dementia will become an increasing problem, so all healthcare professional who work with older people will need to have at least basic skills in this area. This module therefore serves as a solid introduction to the area, and complements other modules available in the overall programme.
