The Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice (@AlzscotCPP)  is pleased to invite staff and students to their Spring Seminar to be held on Wednesday 29th May, 12 noon – 1pm at the UWS Lanarkshire Campus in Room 1.1.02

The Speaker will be Associate Professor Shelley Peacock, College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan who will discuss “RuralCares: An App to Support Rural Carers of Persons with Rare-Dementias”

Shelley’s clinical practice and research interests are focused on supporting persons with dementia and their family caregivers, particularly at the end of life and into bereavement. Shelley teaches fundamental assessment and clinical skills in undergraduate programmes and supervises graduate students in nursing and psychology.

Shelley actively participates in several research projects with colleagues from Saskatchewan, Alberta, Ontario, and Scotland. She received a Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation Establishment Grant (2014 – 2018) to adapt a self-administered bereavement tool to the dementia-context and more recently to adapt an App to Support Rural Carers of Persons with Rare-Dementias which is the topic for her talk.
