Knowledge Translation in Dementia Care: It Takes a Community Workshop

Knowledge Translation in Dementia Care
It Takes a Community Workshop


On May 20, 2014 Dr. Sherry Dupuis, Dr. Jenny Ploeg, Dr. Carrie McAiney and Sian Lockwood (Partnerships in Dementia Care Alliance) had the pleasure of attending the Knowledge Translation in Dementia Care Workshop led by Dr. Catherine Ward-Griffin (Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing, Western University).                                                            Pictures

Funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR), the workshop examined the challenges and opportunities within community-based dementia care. The goal of the workshop was to develop an action plan that will assist Canadians in achieving dementia-friendly communities and create new and diverse partnerships that will mobilize and advocate for community resources for persons living with dementia and their families.

Collaborators from 25 regional, provincial, and national organizations, as well as researchers from Western University, Lakehead University, McMaster University and the University of Waterloo contributed to planning and organizing the workshop.
