Event description

Description

This half-day event aims to offer healthcare professionals (nurses, GPs, OTs, care home staff, etc.) with a landscape view of the communication difficulties of people living with dementia and the resources available to positively support this communication. The agenda for the day is:

Communication Difficulties in People Living with Dementia

We will explore the specific cognitive mechanisms underlaying the communication difficulties across different types of dementia

Strategies to Improve Communication in Dementia

What research and clinical practice have taught us about how to maximize communication in people living with dementia?

Stigma and Mental Capacity

What do we mean when we speak about stigma in dementia? What are the consequences of stigma for the rights of people living with dementia?

Please feel free to contact Anna Volkmer (a.volkmer.15@ucl.ac.uk) or Aida Suárez-González (aida.gonzalez@ucl.ac.uk) if you need further information about the event.
