Former OML Facilitator and Melbourne-Based OM4 Graduate Marie Lapiejko has been engaged to develop the documentation for this training program. A small group of interested OM4 graduates have also agreed to participate as a volunteer Project Sounding Board. We aim to complete the Program documentation before 30/Jun/2020, and pilot the Program in the second half of 2020.
OML is currently in conversation with several organisations who have expressed an interest in being involved. These organisations may well accelerate the program delivery schedule, so stay tuned for further details!
If you are interested in enrolling for this Program, please register your interest now - email OML and we will add your name to the Program Wait List.

You will be learning more about Dementia from industry experts during this Course. Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia and, with an estimated 250 people joining the population with it each day, our graduates may already be working with those exhibiting signs and symptoms of Dementia without realising it.
You can get a really good headstart by enrolling for the University of Tasmania Wicking Dementia Centre's Understanding Dementia MOOC. A MOOC is not a furry marsupial - it's a Massive Open Online Course - it's free, it's open to anybody regardless of training or experience, and it's online - but it's no pushover. This particular MOOC is recognised worldwide, and has made our "Highly Recommended Further Learning" list.
Having recently completed the course, I can honestly say that it has helped me to understand what my Mum, me, my family, her friends, and her carers went through before she passed away. I wish I had finished it before she was diagnosed.
More information on the topics you will be discussing on this Course can be found on the following websites:
