A workshop explaining how dementia care services can be improved in the Manchester area. Academics share their findings from two recent studies, and canvas the thoughts and opinions of those affected by dementia.
At this event experienced dementia researchers from the University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University share their findings from two studies examining how local dementia care services can be more fit-for-purpose.
They will present their findings alongside a person with dementia and a family carer, who have helped design and deliver the event. They will also canvas the views and opinions of those attending the event, asking people affected by dementia and those with younger onset dementia what their particular needs are, and asking service users and family carer delegates what they want dementia services to look like in their area.
The researchers will share the findings as a workshop activity around small tables, and will consult the audience on their views of the findings, as well as discussing opportunities for future research collaboration. The audience will also be asked about what sort of social science dementia research they would like to see more of in the future.
