Focus on Dementia Learning System

The Learning System aims to rapidly capture and share learning to support spread at pace and scale. We do this by hosting themed online webinars and workshops, sharing evidence summaries, producing case studies, developing toolkits and measurement plans. We are also strengthening existing networks, offering opportunities to reflect, share learning and problem solve together.

Focus on Dementia Network

Our Focus on Dementia network is open to all staff working with people living with dementia. Our aim is to build a community of staff who can network with each other to learn and share best practice and improve the support provided to people with dementia throughout Scotland.

Our network members are invited to join virtual events and receive our quarterly e-newsletter. To become a network member simply join our mailing list.

We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our e-newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our e‑newsletter. For more information, please see our privacy notice.
