Understanding Dementia: Seeing the Person
26 April 12
Following the shocking revelations about care failings as shown on BBC Panorama programme on Monday, Bradford Dementia Group hosted a pre-planned public lecture as part of the Bradford Debates lecture series last night.
Paul Edwards and Claire Surr discussed work from the University of Bradford’s Internationally recognised Centre for Excellence, Bradford Dementia Group.
The lecture described the work of Bradford Dementia Group with partnership organisations, including hospitals and care homes, designed to improve the quality of care offered to those living with dementia, and overcome the barriers to high quality care current present in the care system.
Paul Edwards, Head of Training and Practice Development and a senior lecturer with the Bradford Dementia Group at the University of Bradford, said: "The group are committed to spreading the message about better care for those living with dementia – which is why these public events for the local community demonstrating good practice are as vital as working with the national media to expose bad practice. We were pleased that the event was well attended and look forward to offering more opportunities to West Yorkshire residents to hear about our work."
