Dementia - breaking down the myths

Join us to find out what dementia is, and what it is not. This seminar will explain in simple terms what dementia is – with a particular focus on Alzheimer’s disease – and its main causes, key signs and symptoms, and risk factors. Why behavioural changes occur will also be covered.

We’ll address common myths and misconceptions about dementia, as well as concerns you might have. In addition, the seminar will explain the importance of seeking a diagnosis if noticing changes and how you can access further information, as well as appropriate support and services, if necessary.

This seminar is suitable for the general community, health professionals, family carers and people with dementia.

CPD points: This program is suitable for the continuing professional development of registered nurses and other health professionals.​
