DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT CHANGED BEHAVIOUR IN DEMENTIA?

Capacity Australia in partnership with the Dementia Centre for Research Collaboration(DCRC), UNSW are hosting a FREE national webinar as part of the government funded Empowered Project. The webinar will cover:

• Changed behaviour and psychological symptoms in dementia;
• Medication use in dementia and
• Rights of people with dementia and their supporters to be informed decision makers about the care they receive.

The webinar will be presented by Professor Carmelle Peishah and Professor Henry Brodaty, leaders in dementia, prescribing for older people and human rights and elder abuse.

Following registration for the webinar you will be sent a confirmation email with a link to complete a pre-webinar knowledge questionnaire.
