General opinion of participants demonstrates that previous meetings were important knowledge base for professional training of those coping with dementia, including employees in health, social, administrative and non-governmental work.
After 7th Psychogeriatric Conference in 2011, this year in autumn we organize the 8th conference. We strive to continue the work of our founder, prof. dr. Aleš Kogoj, specialist of psychiatry, who was the initiator of Psychogeriatric Conferences.
8th Psychogeriatric Conference, will take place on September 16 and 17 in Terme Dobrna, entitled “Live with dementia in dementia friendly environment”.
The conference is mainly focused to exchange information and experiences from different professions, related to dementia. Each session will contribute to promote quality and humane care of people with dementia and furthermore contribute to the quality of life of the families.
We kindly invite all whose work is mostly related to different aspects of dementia: psychiatrists, neurologists, general practitioners and other medical professionals, social workers, caregivers, representatives of retirement homes, carers of persons with dementia and individuals with dementia.
