Living With Dementia Care Pathways
I have attached the module handbook, together with many Journals with literature for arguments. Not sure how many sources/references. If You need any information,
please don’t hesitate to contact me.
To disclose or not to disclose?
Critically assess the research literature that explores the disclosure of a diagnosis of dementia to the person with dementia and their carers. What conclusions would
you draw regarding the benefits and risks of disclosure for the person with dementia and their carers?
Use examples from your practice experience to further illustrate your answer.
