I’ve invited Dr Shibley Rahman (@dr_shibley) to give a seminar as part of our seminar series here at Centre for Dementia, Institute of Mental Health (@InstituteMH). https://idea.nottingham.ac.uk/news/events/centre-dementia-seminar

Shibley can’t make it in person, but has sent a video presentation – so I thought this was an opportunity to share this online, and invite people to join the discussion via twitter. Shibley will also be responding via twitter – so it’s a bit of an experimental seminar / webinar…! Everyone is welcome to join the discussion – using hashtag #DFCdiscuss.

Join live at 11:30 GMT next Thursday 12th Jan. But you’re welcome to watch the presentation before or after: https://vimeo.com/198066585

Have a quick look through the slides (without video) https://t.co/ApRQZPSv1w and read his blog here: https://t.co/xwWtiIz9Q8

I have been really pleased with the responses of many people on twitter about this event. I mentioned this on tweetchat #diversealz and the coordinator @DiverseAlz has been very supportive of the idea. In fact #diversealz tweetchat have arranged the theme of the discussion in the evening to also be about DFC and relationship with dementia friends (8pmGMT).

My aim in making the presentation online and opening up the debate on twitter is that it enables people with dementia and their carers to join in the debate, when they may find it difficult to attend a meeting at the university. I recognise this still does not address the digital divide problem, and we need to continue to address that as well. Also it widens the debate to an international level (people join #diversealz chats from US and Canada).

Please join us on Thurs 12th Jan 2017, and I’ll post a summary of the event (including your posts on twitter!) This summary will also inform my knowledge exchange fellowship about support for people with dementia in the community – funded by Alzheimer’s Society (@AlzheimersSoc), in collaboration with Alzheimer Nederland (@AlzheimerNL)

I am looking forward to the upcoming TAnDem Arts and Dementia Conference entitled "Research into Practice", which is taking place later in September 2016. I come from a healthcare and training background and am a keen supporter and advocate of arts in care (music especially).
