Presentation Description

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.
