2nd Dementia Summit to be held on June 30
The 2nd Dementia Thought Leaders Invitational Summit will be held on Monday, June 30, in Washington, D.C. The Summit will be convened by the Dementia Care Alliance, which is made up of leaders from CCAL-Advancing Person-Centered Living, Planetree, The Eden Alternative ® and AMDA - The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine. Nearly 70 dementia experts will attend the closed meeting.
At the first meeting in June 2012, experts discussed and defined the gold standard of dementia care as outlined in their June 2013 publication, “Dementia Care: The Quality Chasm.” This year, participants will build upon the effort to deliver person-centered dementia care by:
- Evaluating recommendations and identify whether new items need to be added
- Discussing challenges and barriers to implementing recommendations
- Creating ways to address the identified challenges and barriers
- Developing steps to move forward and implement recommendations
Participants will meet at the 9th Floor Conference Center at the Biotechnology Industry Organization located at 1201 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC.
