Dementia: Its Challenges and Opportunities. Preparing Ourselves for the Future
Presented by Sylvia Davidson, O.T. Reg. (Ont.)
This two-day interactive workshop will provide occupational therapists and other health professionals working with older adults the opportunity to learn and to discuss topics relevant to dementia. Day 1 focusses on understanding the brain and the course of dementia, reviewing key assessment tools and providing a systematic approach to behaviours associated with dementia. Day 2 of this interactive workshop will allow participants to explore several “sensitive issues” that present unique ethical challenges, such as driving, intimacy and long-term care settings.
