In DAI’s “A Meeting of the Minds” monthly Webinar series, we feature people who have unique perspectives on dementia and who challenge the status quo; our speakers are always highly regarded international academics, clinicians, service providers or keynote speakers.
Monthly webinars focus on a variety of topics, and provide an opportunity for people with dementia to connect with the wider community of those living with the disease or working in the area of dementia, and vice versa. To participate, you need only an Internet connection, while a webcam and microphone will ensure a fuller experience.
DAI’s “A Meeting of The Minds” November 2017 Webinar:
- Wednesday, November 22, 2017 (USA/EU/UK/CA)
- Thursday, November 23, 2017 (AU/NZ/IND/JP/TWN)
This event is being hosted by Dementia Alliance International (DAI) and is available online as a Webinar. Although it it set in a number of time zones, it is only ONE event.
About Jacki: Jacki Liddle is a research fellow and occupational therapist researching quality of life, participation and life transitions. She is particularly interested in understanding and optimising the community lives of people living with neurological conditions, older people and family caregivers. She is currently involved in codeveloping technologies with consumers to support communication and to monitor the impact of health conditions during everyday life. She developed the CarFreeMe program to help people remain active and engaged in their communities after stopping driving.
About the Webinar: This presentation will cover two topics that relate to ways of supporting continued participation in those things that are important to you while living with dementia. The first is an introduction to occupational therapy. I will talk about occupational therapy’s (OT) role in supporting the participation of people living with dementia and their care partners in occupations that are important to them. I will also give an overview of the evidence for occupational therapy interventions. The second topic is a look at the co-design of technology and how consumers can and should be involved in designing technology. I will look particularly at our experiences with co-design in the Florence Project at the University of Queensland. The Florence Project is co-designing technology to support communication with people living with dementia and their communication partners. I aim to have time for questions and discussion as I would love to hear people’s thoughts about these areas.
