Seminar Programme: Innovation and Learning in Dementia Care

The HSE & Genio Dementia Programme, with support from the Atlantic Philanthropies and the Health Service Executive (HSE) has been underway since 2012. It is developing and testing new service models to improve the range and quality of community-based supports for people with dementia; inform public policy and investment in this area; and build the leadership in the field that is necessary in order to capitalise on the potential of the National Dementia Strategy.

This event provides an opportunity to learn about innovative developments in dementia care in both community and hospital settings in the southern regions of CHO 4 and 5 and to receive an overview of the national dementia ‘Understand Together’ Campaign. There is also opportunity for peer-to-peer and cross-disciplinary learning and networking. 


HSE & Genio Dementia Briefing 2016

This event provided an opportunity to learn from pioneers in the acute sector in Ireland who are exploring and testing models of best practice for pathways of integrated dementia care. This briefing came at the mid-way point in a three year programme and offers an opportunity to share early learnings, describe the initiatives developed and inform how these initiatives are impacting service delivery for people with dementia.


Genio Annual Dementia Conference 2015

This event will offer an opportunity to learn from leaders who are ‘Making Personalised Supports a Reality’. This event is the culmination of three years of innovative practice and research in Ireland. Based on this work, a comprehensive evidence and practice based ‘community supports model for people with dementia’ will be presented.
