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 usually 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.
Presenters: Dr Jacki Liddle and Dr Theresa Scott

About the Webinar:
Some people say that stopping driving is the “hardest thing” they face in living with dementia. Our research has explored people’s experiences related to stopping driving, the involvement of health professionals and key times when support is needed. The talk will draw on this to cover ways to prepare, decide and adjust emotionally and practically to life without driving. It will highlight ways to stay engaged in the community and in meaningful activities. It will also show advice for health professionals and family members for ways they can assist people who are retiring from driving. The CarFreeMe program is an example of an education and support program helping people with stopping driving, and we will give an overview of this and ways people could get involved.
About our speakers:
Jacki: Dr Jacki Liddle is an Occupational Therapist and Research Fellow. She is involved in researching life transitions, ways of supporting community engagement and ways of measuring meaningful outcomes.

Theresa: Dr Theresa Scott is an NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellow and a Psychologist at The University of Queensland. Her fellowship research is focused on the complex issues around dementia and driving. She is particularly interested in how driving cessation might be better managed in primary care settings and in supporting people living with dementia who are transitioning to retirement from driving
