Wednesday 3 February 12-2pm.
2020 has been the year of Covid. Dementia has been the most common underlying condition among people who have died from Covid. Science has developed vaccines for Covid. Yet there is still no cure for dementia and the evidence base for treatment remains limited, so it continues to be a life limiting illness and disability.
What’s the importance of values and science for people affected by dementia and practitioners? Are values relevant in dementia care when we are being “led by the science” for Covid? Are rights important? What is ‘values-based practice’ and why is it important for dementia?
This free interactive webinar will consider these questions and more. Speaking at the webinar will be Professor Julian Hughes and Toby Williamson, authors of The Dementia Manifesto – Putting Values-Based Practice to Work (Cambridge University Press, 2019). Also speaking will be two people with lived experience of dementia, Keith Oliver and Jayne Goodrick. There will be time for questions and discussion.
The webinar will be chaired by Philly Hare from Innovations in Dementia and hosted by the Collaborating Centre for Values-Based Practice at St Catherine’s College, Oxford.
