Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK and the number of people with dementia is expected to double over the next 30 years.
UCLPartners is supporting the NHS to improve healthcare delivery by ensuring it has a workforce that is skilled to provide high quality dementia care at all stages of the condition, and able to understand its importance. As the number of patients with dementia is expected to continue growing, demand for quality dementia care will increase.
To date, nearly 55,000 health and social care professionals have accessed dementia training across the UCLPartners’ region as part of our programme.
As the project continues to evolve, our focus remains to promote, deliver and measure the impact of dementia education across the health and care sector. Reflecting on the key pillars identified within the Dementia Well Pathway NHS Transformation Framework we are delighted to announce our new series of dementia education sessions.
Starting during World Alzheimer’s Month in September, the series will focus on the individual pillars of the framework. Attendees will hear from leading experts from dementia specialisms as well as people with dementia, who will share latest innovation, research and practical advice to improve care for people living with dementia.
The sessions provide an opportunity to learn, share and network with peers, encouraging a call to action. Attendees will be challenged to reflect on current practice and create opportunities to work more closely together to make a difference and improve care for everyone living with dementia.
The sessions will run from September 2017 to March 2018. View the dates for the five sessions here.
