To preview this course, visit Home Based Care. Home based care is aimed at family carers lookng after a loved one with dementia. Educators who are interested in providing a ‘social learning’ course for this cohort can use this course to empower and inform family carers about a series of issues that will challenge them as they navigate their care journey. The course was developed for an Irish audience and some parts of it contain information for an Irish audience. Educators from different jurisdictions are advised to edit these sections as appropriate.
The course has an Induction and Orientation week followed by six weeks of materials covering a range of topics including: what is dementia and changes in relationships, communications and behaviour changes, personal care in a safe environment and very importantly caring for the carer. Course materials are contained in:
‘Books’ which themselves contain a mixture of text, videos and video presentations
‘Forums’ which ask participants to answer a series of open ended questions designed to promote the development of a community of learners
‘Choice’ which asks participants to answer a simple question designed to let the group get to know each other
‘Feedback’ seeks weekly feedback from participants on their learner experience
‘Assignment’ offers participants an opportunity to upload a reflective care delivery action plan
‘Quiz’ in the final part of the course asks participants to answer a series of multiple choice questions and is designed to demonstrate knowledge retention

Disaster Management Program in higher secondary level
Natural disasters: including floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and volcano eruptions that have immediate impacts on human health and secondary impacts causing further death and suffering from (for example) floods, landslides, fires, tsunamis.Environmental emergencies: including technological or industrial accidents, usually involving the production, use or transportation of hazardous material, and occur where these materials are produced, used or transported, and forest fires caused by humans.Complex emergencies: involving a break-down of authority, looting and attacks on strategic installations, including conflict situations and war.Pandemic emergencies: involving a sudden onset of contagious disease that affects health, disrupts services and businesses, brings economic and social costs.Any disaster can interrupt essential services, such as health care, electricity, water, sewage/garbage removal, transportation and communications. The interruption can seriously affect the health, social and economic networks of local communities and countries. Disasters have a major and long-lasting impact on people long after the immediate effect has been mitigated. Poorly planned relief activities can have a significant negative impact not only on the disaster victims but also on donors and relief agencies. So it is important that physical therapists join established programmes rather than attempting individual efforts.Local, regional, national and international organisations are all involved in mounting a humanitarian response to disasters. Each will have a prepared disaster management plan. These plans cover prevention, preparedness, relief and recovery.

The Oceans Garden: Coral Reefs (DC)Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups.
