Researchers from Trinity College, in partnership with Tallaght University Hospital, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona and HOPE the European Hospital and Healthcare Federation, have developed a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) focusing on dementia-friendly hospital design.
The MOOC guides health professionals and others in the design of a hospital experience that supports the needs of dementia patients. Among other considerations, the MOOC helps professionals understand the symptoms of dementia and related impairments, and how these affect the patient’s experience of the hospital setting.
