Overview

DTA's Meaningful Spaces workshops use a highly engaging and immersive virtual reality experience to develop participants’ understanding of the effects of dementia

During this half-day workshop, participants will explore the principles of environmental design and medication management in supporting people experiencing changed behaviour and psychological symptoms of dementia. By building empathy, knowledge and skills among participants, they can provide better care for people living with dementia. These workshops have been developed for all healthcare professionals involved in providing care for people living with dementia, including nurses, medical practitioners and allied health.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Meaningful Spaces workshops scheduled for February have had to be postponed. Workshops will now be held in the second half of 2021.

Whilst the virtual reality scenarios are based in residential care, the principles apply across all care settings. Workshops will be held in the second half of 2021.
    Registration includes:
  • Comprehensive course notes
  • Use of an individual virtual reality system throughout the workshop
  • Morning or afternoon tea
