About the Course 

National, state/regional and local governments are paying more attention to the problem of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, frequently designating staff to facilitate dementia planning processes or implement programs. 
Forty-nine states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico have dementia plans and 7 states are updating plans that are 5 years old. 32 countries have a national plan and the World Health Organization (WHO) established a target of all nations having a plan or substantial Alzheimer’s disease policy or program within a broader national policy frame such as a non-communicable disease plan in the next 5 years. 
This course offers age care professionals training in Alzheimer’s disease/dementia policy issues, information about effective policy approaches, and resources to mobilize activities that make sense for governments at different levels.

What will I learn?

1. How to explain the need for a global/national/subnational action plan with a public health response to dementia
2. How to compare national health and political systems and their structures in terms of financing, governing, and implementing dementia and brain health policies
3. How to develop effective communication with policy makers

This University of Massachusetts Boston course is offered by the College of Advancing and Professional Studies, in conjunction with the Gerontology Institute, McCormack Graduate School of Policy & Global Studies.
