THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE 

Join our clinicians to find out more about advance care planning for Dementia, MCI and the Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia.

The event will open with a hot buffet supper and the opportunity to network, followed by a presentation from Dr Vishelle Kamath, Clinical Director of St Andrew's Neuropsychiatry and Old Age Services, focusing on NICE Dementia guidance.

Dementia is a growing challenge. As the population ages and people live for longer, it has become one of the most important health and care issues facing the world. In England it is estimated that around 676,000 people have dementia. In the whole of the UK, the number of people with dementia is estimated at 850,000.

There is a considerable economic cost associated with the disease estimated at £23 billion a year, which is predicted to triple by 2040. This is more than the cost of cancer, heart disease and stroke.

This event looks at the new NICE guidelines for the assessments and treatment of Dementia, as well as key areas including managing behaviours that challenge and end of life care.

Following on from the presentation you will then be able to choose TWO* 'information stations', where you can find out more and share insights and views on the subjects listed below.
