Medicine and me: Living well with dementia
The Medicine and Me series of meetings aim to update us all on important conditions and gives direct voice to patients and their carers to air their concerns on the impact of diagnosis, investigation and management.
Physicians and surgeons and indeed all healthcare professionals continue to learn from and be inspired to greater efforts by our patients to improve care.
The audience at this meeting comprised of those with living with dementia, their families, carers and advocates, representing about 70% of those present; and clinicians and researchers, representing not more than 30%.
This event took place on 14th April 2016 at the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
