Meet the people who love FutureLearn

Anne, who took the health and psychology course 'The Many Faces of Dementia' on FutureLearn

As I became more knowledgeable about my mum’s condition and through meeting and speaking with others living with dementia, I was attracted to the course, as it dealt with rarer examples of the disease. It would consolidate what I already knew and increase my confidence when meeting other carers and patients.

Dr Omeriowan, who took the healthcare training course 'Medicines Adherence: Supporting Patients with Their Treatment' on FutureLearn

So far, I have been able to win two non-adherent patients back and I am so impressed. I have introduced new methods at work and my patients seem to be more confident in me and my colleagues. I have also invited over six people to study with FutureLearn.
