Translating Dementia Care Research into Better Practice Workshop

Event details

Date and time: 
5 July 2011 - 9:30am - 16:00pm

On Tuesday 5 July 2011 from 9:30am – 4:00pm NHMRC in conjunction with Alzheimer’s Australia will be holding a workshop focusing on the translation of dementia care research into better practice.

The aim of this workshop is to increase the capacity of Australia’s dementia care research, community-sector, policy and service provider communities to effectively translate research evidence into higher quality dementia care.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To improve awareness and understanding of knowledge translation concepts and strategies amongst those involved in dementia care research, policy making and service provision;
  • To increase linkages and provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas between those interested in evidence-based quality improvement of dementia care; and
  • To bring together Australian and/or leaders in the fields of dementia care and knowledge translation to identify translational opportunities and priority areas.

Consumers, policy makers, service providers, researchers and community organisations with a strong interest in knowledge translation to improve the quality of evidence-based dementia care are encouraged to attend.
