Dementia in diverse groups: Caring for people with dementia who are culturally and linguistically different to you

As in many therapeutic areas, cultural and linguistic diversity has an impact on the recognition, diagnosis and management of dementia -- but the ‘how’, ‘why’ and ‘what to do’ for people with dementia in diverse groups can be tricky to navigate in busy primary practice.

Join us as we explore different clinical presentations of dementia in people with cultural differences. This highly practical presentation includes social, family and other considerations related to people in cultural and linguistically diverse groups, who have dementia. We’ll help you understand and navigate through these considerations so you can provide optimal dementia care.

Bring your curly questions too! Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with, and ask questions of the panel.

Date and time: 5 November 2020, 7:00pm - 8:30pm AEDT

Duraton: 1.5 hours
