Tuesday 1 November - Inaugural Lecture, 6:30pm, Julian Study Centre Lecture Theatre
House of Cards: Dementia at Home, Prof. Eneida Mioshi, School of Health Sciences
Dementias slowly take away people's independence. While we cannot take away the disease processes in the brain, can we find ways to support people to do things that are important to them at home and in the community? This lecture will explore the various factors behind functional dependence, and how a systematic approach to everyday living issues could lead to novel therapies in dementias and motor neurone disease.
The venue is on the main university campus. Free admission. No need to book.
Wednesday 9 November - Seminar, 1-2pm, Queens Building 01.09 (NEAT)
Dr Holly Robson, Lecturer in Clinical Language Sciences, Stroke Association Senior Research Training Fellow, University of Reading.
Seminar title and further details to follow. The venue is on the main university campus.
The School of Health Sciences runs a monthly series of lively seminars, some with workshops, which everyone is welcome to attend. They aim to provide a regular focus for staff, students, clinicians and interested members of the public to connect with current debates on research and evidence and to build scholarly activity.
Generally, the seminars run from 13:00 - 14:00. The workshops are intended to help students and practitioners explore how they can apply the ideas and skills brought by the seminar presenter to their practice – at any level of expertise. So they do not presume specialist knowledge of the area but will draw on the wide range of participants’ interests on the day.
If you are attending from outside the university please contact Sally Beet (+44(0) 01603 591212) to ensure the seminar is taking place.
