Location
B128 B Floor Medical School QMC
Date(s)
Thursday 29th March 2018 (12:30-14:30)
Description

Speaker: Dr Rachael Kelley, Research Fellow, Leeds Beckett University 

Few previous studies have explored the involvement of families in the planning and delivery of general hospital care for people with dementia. In particular, little is known about how family involvement is experienced by, and impacts upon, people with dementia. This seminar will present findings from an ethnographic study exploring the impact of family involvement on experiences and outcomes of hospital care for people with dementia. The findings are drawn from data collected via observations, informal conversations and interviews in two elderly care wards over a period of approximately 18 months.

As usual, the session begins at 12.30pm with a light lunch, then the seminar begins at 1.00pm.

Attendance is free and all are welcome.
