Register For Practical Dementia Events Across Wales

We're offering two half-day Practical Dementia training days aimed at helping medical professionals and carers improve the lives of those with and affected by dementia across Wales.

The events will follow the similar successful events on the same subject which we delivered earlier in 2012 and each 3-hour course costs £30 per delegate which includes free on-site parking.

Both these practical courses are CPD events aimed at the following mental health roles with attendees provided with an Attendance Certificate and will take place in Cardiff and Wrexham this Spring:

  • GPs
  • CPNs (Community Psychiatric Nurses)
  • Practice Nurses
  • Consultant Psychiatrists
  • Health Board Officials
  • The Care Home Sector
  • The Alzheimer’s Society

Both events begin at 1pm for lunch and registration with South Wales training taking place at the Novotel Hotel in Cardiff on 7th March 2013 from 2pm until 5pm with the second North Wales training day being held at the Ramada Plaza in Wrexham on 18th April 2013 from 2pm until 5pm.

Please note that each course concentrates on practice and not theory in relation to dementia and the proposed agenda for each event will cover the following issues:     

  • Memory clinics and the interface with Primary Care
  • Social Care – Interface Issues
  • Vascular Dementia
  • Dementia from a Carers Perspective – Interaction with Primary Care
