This interactive workshop will assist health professionals to maximise quality of life for people living with dementia by taking a comprehensive and holistic view of behaviour.
The workshop is guided by three principal themes: to assist practitioners to recognise a person’s story and strengths; and reflect on themselves within the relationship with those they are supporting; and in the wider context of their workplace.
Prerequisites for this workshop are that participants have:
- An understanding of dementia, including common symptoms and different types
- Awareness of principles of person-centred care and approaches to communication
- Awareness of the range of responsive behaviours
This is a catered event, with morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch supplied.
