DAI “A Meeting Of The Minds” Webinars & Events

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.

In December, we  host two celebration events, rather than having an educational speaker, and in January, our Cafe Le Brain is usually the celebration of DAI’s ‘Birthday’, although we always aim to have a Webinar in January as well.

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; a webcam and microphone will ensure a fuller experience.

About the Webinar: There is no systematic way for people with dementia to get involved in research, and limited support is available to facilitate a broader public engagement in dementia research. Recruiting participants in dementia research is costly and time consuming. In partnership with University College London and University of Exeter, a team at the university of Sydney has been working to tackle the challenges in Australia through StepUp for Dementia Research. This presentation will focus on what this new initiative aims to deliver and how it will achieve its goal to improve recruitment efficiency and public engagement in dementia research. The session will conclude with Q&A, and time permitting the participants will be given opportunity to sign up in real time.
