Dementia Knowledge Exchange
An Online Knowledge Exchange Event
Organized By The School of Social Work Nipissing University
This live virtual event follows on from last year's Knowledge Exchange, and is a part of public engagement activities of the Rare Dementia Support (RDS) Impact Study, a five-year study funded jointly by the UK Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) and National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
The event will feature an update on findings emerging from the Rare Dementia Support (RDS) Impact Study, presentations exploring the clinical symptoms and obtaining a diagnosis for three rare forms of dementia: posterior cortical atrophy (PCA), young onset Alzheimer's disease (YOAD) and Lewy body dementia (LBD). There will also be a presentation by YouQuest, an Alberta-based grassroots organization that provides rehabilitative support interventions for people living with young onset dementia.
