Ageing and Dementia Studies Professional Doctorate
The Professional Doctorate as a distanced learning pathway with e-learning modules seeks to offer an alternative route for advanced practitioners in the UK and overseas to gain an applied doctoral-level qualification and consolidate both their learning and expertise, as well as gain new insights and theoretical perspectives. It builds on contemporary research evidence underpinning applied practice, health behaviour and health related policy in relation to dementia care from the disciplines of mental health and health and social care management.
The Professional Doctorate is aligned with contemporary UK and Wales-based policy imperatives guiding the development of dementia care and responds to the educational requirements of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and other NHS organisations in the UK. The Professional Doctorate provides a distanced learning pathway with e-learning modules and access to the Research Summer School to provide a flexible mode of learning, involving partnership with the student’s host organisation. It also provides a range of exit awards that provide opportunities for tailoring a bespoke program of postgraduate education for clinicians and those seeking development towards the Professional Doctorate.
