NEWS

 edition 8 november 2017
Welcome
 
We are pleased to have taken part in the recent Australian Dementia Forum, an initiative of the NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research (NNIDR), and also Dementia Australia’s (formerly Alzheimer’s Australia) national conference. 

Our researchers presented at the NNIDR CDPC session on a range of dementia research projects from value based health care, design of the residential built environment to clinical and consumer guidelines. The feedback from forum attendees was really positive about the achievements of the CDPC thus far, and between that session and the CDPC posters, the Forum was a good showcase for our work.

We also acknowledge one of our partners, Alzheimer’s Australia, change of name to Dementia Australia that was announced at the conference, to reflect its role as a national body for people with dementia.

In this issue we feature findings from the final report of a project on navigating clinical pathways, “Understanding the Journey Better”, news on the SIMPLER project on validating medication simplification tools and research findings on supported decision-making.

In late October we were pleased to bring an international speaker from Denmark, and Professor Chris Poulos from Hammond Care to present at a workshop for clinical practitioners and aged care workers on reablement that offered an “on the ground” and a global view. Further work is occurring in this area with Activity 1337 looking at Reablement Guidelines.

CDPC Director and Chief Investigator
