UHULL team successfully organized and held the National CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD Workshop in Hull, UK. Around 70 participants, among which healthcare and social professionals, researchers and members of general public participated in the event that took place on January 27th, at the Village Hotel in Hull.
The workshop programme included presentations about CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD project and other technology-based projects targeted to people with dementia or multiple disabilities. Keynote speakers from INTERDEM and Humber NHS Foundation Trust, as well as from Bradford, Sheffield, Huddersfield, Nottingham and HULL Universities, pointed out the role of technology in dementia care. Moreover, throughout the roundtable discussions, the need of collecting feedback on technology projects from people with dementia themselves was underlined.
Particularly significant was the presence of a person with dementia, who gave a powerful presentation on the benefits she experienced from the use of ICT.
Finally, the participants exchanged their ideas regarding the recruitment of people with dementia and their caregivers to the upcoming pilot study of CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD project.
