Opening Session - Day 2


Session Program
11:00 am
Join Stevie, Conor, Sinead and Colm as they welcome you to Day 2 of IDC2020. 

Stevie is the world's most advanced social robot. He has been designed to live and work in retirement communities, augmenting rather than replacing the role of carers, freeing them up to focus more on person-centric tasks and so improving care outcomes for residents. He has been around the world, being put through his paces in beta pilots all the way from Ireland and the UK, to Italy and the US, constantly learning and improving with help from everyone he's been in contact with. 

Stevie the Robot and Sinead Grennan, CEO of Engaging Dementia will interview Dr Conor McGinn.
11:35 am
Chaired by Pat Sparrow CEO Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA)

Doctors Kurrle, Macfarlane and McKellar will consider the complexities of meeting the clinical and psycho social needs of people with advanced dementia. Through a panel format they will consider, debate and discuss issues including the dementia diagnosis and what we mean by cognitive functional decline. Through the lens of behaviours and psychological symptoms, they will draw on their collective professional and personal experience to discuss restrictive practices, drug treatments and use of psychotropics. From the experiences and learnings of the Australia's Royal Commission, Dementia Support Australia, the South Australia Oakden experience, Covid 19 and more this panel will be an interactive opportunity to challenge and inform any aged or dementia care practitioner.
