Event description

Description

A study day for health and social care professionals who are involved in managing the clinical and social needs of younger people with dementia and their families and interested in developing knowledge and expertise to improve outcomes for patients.

Speakers from the Cognitive Disorders Clinic at Wessex Neurological Centre, Southampton General Hospital, (University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust) led by Dr. Christopher Kipps, Consultant Neurologist, will deliver presentations on the assessment/investigation and diagnosis of younger onset dementia, disease progression and symptom management in the community, patient and family support systems including the use of the electronic health record platform (My Medical Record), education for patients, families and care staff and research possibilities and developments. Speakers will reflect on current UHS care pathways from diagnosis to end-of-life care and utilise discussion groups to consolidate current practice and future pathway development for this client group.

The later part of the day will be devoted to the formation of a peer support/supervision group for any health or social care professional who would like to be part of a future region-wide group. The purpose of the group will be sharing clinical updates relating to younger onset dementia, discussing younger onset dementia or care scenarios with a range of professionals with similar interests who can offer advice, discussion, share expertise and problem-solve for this patient group.

This group will be led by Fiona Chaabane, Clinical Nurse Specialist in Younger Onset Dementia and will aim to draw together health and social care professionals from across the region to share practice, expertise and support service development working across service boundaries to improve care and outcomes for patients. It is anticipated that this group will meet quarterly - venue to move around the region to facilitate attendance.
