In Germany, approximately 1.7 million people currently suffer from dementia. In current dementia research, a paradigm shift is emerging in the prediction, early detection and diagnosis of dementia. With the project "Entscheidungskonflikt prädiktive Demenz-Diagnostik: Diskursverfahren zu Beratungs- und Ethikkompetenzen mit Stakeholdern und Studierenden" (Decision Conflict in Predictive Dementia Diagnostics: Discourse Procedures on Counseling and Ethical Competencies with Stakeholders and Students), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), we from the Institute for Ethics and History of Medicine at the University Medical Center Göttingen, in cooperation with the IEGUS - Institute, addressed unresolved legal, ethical and social dilemmas in the context of prediction. In order to make these challenges accessible to future professionals as well as to raise awareness of the topic of dementia, we have developed a teaching concept in the project. The teaching concept is primarily aimed at teachers and learners from health-related courses of study and training programs. In particular, the teaching of ethical and practical issues of dementia and dementia prediction will be tested. Translated with (free version)
