Today the Dementia Guide for Carers and Care Providers, the product of a collaboration with Health Education England Thames Valley, goes national at the Dementia 2020 conference, Royal Society of Medicine, London.
For some years now we have been working with healthcare professionals on research projects relating to dementia care, from which one output was the Handbook for Dementia Carers developed with Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, to meet the information needs of carers in the Berkshire West region. Launched in 2014, it was subsequently adapted for use in the Essex region by Essex Healthwatch. More recently, we worked with Health Education England Thames Valley, to create app and ebook versions to extend the handbook content to professional as well as family carers.
The publicity materials for the conference exhibition stand (shown above) were prepared by Part 3 students in the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication, Francesca Britton and Alice Watkins.
