Welcome to COVID Dementia Education for Excellence (CODEFE)

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the complexities of care for people living with dementia. However, evidence suggests that an appropriately trained dementia workforce can enhance confidence and competence, and promote positive care experiences both for staff, people living with dementia and their families.

CODEFE is a people-centered training package, composed of three interactive workbooks. The workbooks feature a comprehensive range of topics with relevant practical insights to support people across all stages of the dementia journey.

CODEFE features a blended delivery approach with virtually facilitated sessions supported by web-based workbooks, reflections, and peer-supported discussions.
