Following the success of the Inaugural West Midlands Mental Health Innovation Network (WMMHIN) event held in May on Individual Placement and Support (IPS) and the official launch event which had an element of Crisis Care in July the network held their third event on 13th September on the topic of Dementia.
The event was extremely well attended with a wide variety of delegates present including Clinicians, Commissioners, patient representatives, third sector organisations and academics.
Presentations were delivered by a range of speakers that covered topics from Dementia and patient safety, current solutions and dementia research.
If you would like to take a look at the presentations from the day please see below.
The second part of the afternoon was dedicated to workshops which focused on early dementia challenges of living well, Dementia Friendly Person-Centred Design & Technology, and Dementia and Enriching Lives via Creativity, Arts, Nature and Sport/Supportive communities. Delegates had the opportunity to discuss these topics and challenges faced in these areas, as well as possible solutions. Delegates were encouraged to work with the network to develop the challenges discussed so that they could be submitted to the Meridian health innovation exchange to engage wider support.
