Dementia & Palliative Education Network

What does DPEN do?

DPEN and the UW School of Nursing are preparing dementia-expert registered nurses who are ready to practice to the full scope of their training in any clinical setting.  With training from DPEN, they’ll be able to assume leadership roles in primary, palliative, and long-term care, home health, and related organizations.

DPEN does this in 4 main ways:

1. Educating future clinicians

2. Training practicing nurses

  • Intensive dementia-focused training for practicing registered nurses

3. Supporting care partners

4. Increasing visibility of dementia-nurses
