Repositioning dementia event
Published on 15/12/2022
Alzheimer's New Zealand has announced the programme for their first new one-day event Repositioning Dementia: A new start.
The inaugural event – held both in person and online – is on Thursday 23 March at the National Library of New Zealand, Wellington.
It’s the first one-day event in a new series by the organisation.
A line-up of local and national speakers promises some thought-provoking discussion and collaboration to help reposition dementia for Aotearoa.
“We have a varied and interesting programme including Dementia Mate Wareware Action Plan, human rights and the lived experience of dementia mate wareware and research,” says Alzheimers NZ chief executive Catherine Hall.
“We’ll dive right into what’s happening in these spaces including the new Co-Created Ageing Research Centre, the prevalence of young onset dementia in Aotearoa and working with local Health Improvement Practitioners (HIP) to make it easier for people to get a diagnosis.
“This will be a valuable opportunity to learn the latest news and updates from the sector, as we all continue to work together to support people and whānau to live well with dementia.”
Registrations are open: register for Repositioning Dementia: A new start today.
The series replaces the organisation’s biennial conference – originally scheduled for 2023 – which is a flagship event for the sector.
