Focus on Dementia: Making Strategy a Reality

Focus on Dementia  worked with partner organisations to host a National Event on Wednesday 10 May 2017 at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow. The event was designed to:

  • Support health and social care staff in Scotland in the implementation of key commitments of the dementia strategy (including diagnosis and post diagnostic support, care co-ordination in the community, acute care, specialist dementia units and advanced/palliative care)
  • Showcase the partnership approach being taken in Scotland to support learning and improvement within health and social care partnerships, and
  • Share innovations and improvements in supporting people with dementia and those who care for them.

The event also showcased the work of Focus on Dementia, partner organisations and other dementia initiatives and brought together over 240 delegates from health and social care and people with dementia and carers to share best practice.     

Speakers at the event included Henry Simmons, Chief Executive, Alzheimer Scotland, Brian Robson, Medical Director, Healthcare Improvement Scotland, Scottish Dementia Working Group and National Dementia Carers Action Network members and Dementia Nurse Consultants.
