It’s not too late to register for this DAI Webinar being held tomorrow.
I’m just a bit late promoting it here!!!
Wednesday, November 27, 2019 (USA/CA/UK/EU)
Thursday, November 28, 2019 (AU/NZ/JP/SGP/TWN)
Please note: this is one event, set in a number of different time zones.
About the Webinar: In this session, Al will frame his overall view and approach to dementia and explain how the framework of ‘Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia’ is inadequate to meet the needs of people living with the diagnosis, and actually leads to use of potentially harmful medications. Al will show how an approach focused on various aspects of well-being provides insights into root causes of distress and provides a pathway to more sustainable, drug-free approaches. Al will share stories from his experience that support the approach and also some significant data of its success in a state-wide initiative in the US.
About Al: Dr. Allen Power is an internist, geriatrician, and Schlegel Chair in Ageing and Dementia Innovation at the Schlegel—University of Waterloo Research Institute for Ageing in Ontario, Canada. He is also clinical associate professor of medicine at the University of Rochester, NY, and an international educator on transformational models of care for older adults, particularly those living with changing cognitive abilities.
