@AlzScotCPP in Alicante, España

It’s Dementia Awareness Week here in Scotland but  Dr Margaret Brown, Dr Rhoda Macrae and Anna Jack-Waugh have been off to the University of Alicante to raise dementia awareness there as well

They have been teaching on the first the Erasmus funded dementia education programme which was titled “Understanding Dementia: A Practical Introduction for Students, Practitioners and Family Caregivers.”  

The staff all from the Alzheimer Centre for Policy and Practice who are all based within our School on the Hamilton Campus facilitated what was a very well received evidence into practice programme for a mixed group of health professionals and students from across the Province and wider.

The week was hosted by Professor Manuel Lillo-Crespo a longstanding research collaborator with the School and the Alzheimer’s Centre.
