Brighton and Sussex Medical School: Time for Dementia

The team at Brighton and Sussex developed an educational programme for undergraduate students, to help them better understand long term conditions.

The programme was designed to improve understanding and knowledge in medical, nursing and paramedic students.

Judges felt that this initiative humanises care for people with a long term condition and has the potential to change career long attitudes and practice for an expanding range of health professionals.
