For Dementia Awareness Month 2015, #DAM2015 Day 8, we are re-posting a Master Class from 2014. It is an important conversation about talking to your doctor when you are diagnosed, hosted and facilitated by DAI members, two of who were medical doctors, Dr Jennifer Bute from the UK and Dr Dave Kramer from the USA, when they themselves were diagnosed with dementia.
In this webinar, our panel shared their experiences of sitting on both sides of the table – physician and patient — and talked about how to make the most of your visit to your doctor, how to get the information you need, how to understand what the physician is telling you, and how to advocate for yourself.
