The Oxford AHSN Dementia Clinical Network runs a successful webinar programme supported since 2017/18 with funding from Health Education England Thames Valley. These webinars usually last one hour including questions and take place over lunchtimes. The programme was launched in 2014. In the three years between July 2014 and June 2017 the programme achieved the following:
- 40 webinars took place
- over 980 live attendees
- a further 840 listeners to webinar recordings.
Previous webinar topics included:
- Post-diagnostic support services
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness for people with dementia
- A round-up of randomised controlled trials in 2016
- Memory Services National Accreditation Programme: past, present and future
- How does alcohol affect brain cognition?
- Assistive technologies in practice
- Introducing the new NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre
- Dementia with Lewy bodies
- Risk of people with dementia getting lost.
This report analyses webinar attendance in 2016/17 and also reports results of a stakeholder survey. We aim to increase participation in parts of the Oxford AHSN region where this has been lower, and to run more webinars relevant to non-doctors, and with patient/carer viewpoints.
