This is an opportunity to learn about the dementia research and innovative practice Wales and other nations are undertaking to advance dementia care. The conference brings together an international mix of presenters promoting dementia research and practice from across the world.
Holding this conference virtually is an ideal opportunity to hear key speakers and view presentations without travelling across continents – a perfect learning opportunity!
The conference themes will highlight the latest thinking, research, innovation and life stories currently having an impact or striving to have an impact on dementia care and practice. The Covid19 pandemic has presented real challenges to all countries but has also presented an opportunity for research and real-time innovation – we would like to capture an element of this learning within the three conference themes.
- Dementia Care Research – the latest dementia research including research conducted during the Covid19 pandemic that can offer evidence, insight and learning.
- Quality Improvement – developing initiatives to support: improvement in practice, systems, skills, technology, and approaches to care, including learning from Covid19
- Living with Dementia – initiatives and learning that have a direct positive impact on the person and those that provide care striving to achieve the best outcomes for all, including learning from Covid19
The conference aim: To bring together people with dementia, their carers, practitioners, voluntary sector, policy makers, health and social care professionals, researchers, academics and innovators from across Wales and beyond to hear about the latest research and innovation that will have an impact on improving dementia care.
