Somerset Dementia Event - Friday 8 September 2017
A joint Somerset CCG and Somerset GP Education Trust event was held at Wynford House in Yeovil, to discuss dementia.
The event provided the large multi-professional audience with the latest understanding of both clinical and community aspects to effect optimal outcomes and encourage compassionate care. The day was particularly helpful in educating GPs, practice nurses, acute and community teams and anyone with an interest in dementia or working with people who are living with dementia.
The morning session included a clinical focus with presentations concerning the latest research findings and treatments available and the afternoon focused on dementia in the community and work place. Attendees found the day interesting and inspiring and we also had some very moving testimony from people living with dementia, who continue to actively volunteer to help commissioners, providers and communities gain a better understanding of life with dementia.
There was a great deal of information shared on the day and the speakers have made their presentation slides available in pdf format on this website (click here for link to dementia event presentations). These may be read, downloaded and shared with friends and colleagues.
