Anna de Siún, Senior Project Manager, HSE National Dementia Office provided an overview of the national dementia ‘Understand Together’ campaign and the National Dementia Strategy.

The event concluded with opportunity for peer-to-peer and cross-disciplinary learning and networking through roundtable discussions. Some of the key discussion themes that arose included:
