Description

Confident Conversations about Technology - PDS learning event

This is a specially designed learning programme developed in partnership with the Focus on Dementia team. It is for all post-diagnostic support practitioners throughout Scotland, who support people living with dementia and their families and carers.

Confident Conversations about Technology has been developed by Alzheimer Scotland and the learning is evidenced through SSSC Open Badges (Scottish Social Services Council). Places are free but a commitment to 1 full day of learning and further online participation is required to receive the accreditations. It is funded through the Scottish Government’s Technology Enabled Care Fund.

The learning is intended to raise awareness of developments in technology and to support the acquiring of new skills and knowledge, enabling you to confidently embed conversations about technology into your portfolio of post-diagnostic support. You will leave with the tools and access to resources to make a successful, realistic change where you are.

WHO

  • designed for people who work alongside and have frequent conversations with people living with dementia and families and carers

WHY

  • to inform and enable practitioners to support people living with dementia, their families and carers, to consider technology products and services as part of a wider care and support plan

WHAT

Delegates will -

  • get practical and hands on with technology
  • hear from people actively and effectively using technology
  • get a national perspective on developments in policy and innovation and be able to see how this is working in a local context (relevant to them)
  • hear from manufacturers about new products and developments
  • continue their learning and development journey online following the event, with access to a discussion forum, digital resources and a dedicated Alzheimer Scotland Technology Team

**Further information detailing the structure and outline of the day can be found when signing up to your first SSSC open badge here.**

The numbers for this date are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
