Vision UK and University College London (UCL) collaborated with their members and partners to hold the first Dementia and Sight Loss Conference aimed at medical professionals including consultants, nurses and GPs as well as commissioners, scientists and carers on 22 June 2018.
The conference aimed to raise awareness and educate stakeholders of the issues affecting people with dementia and sight loss as well as discuss strategies for care. In order to share the message more widely beyond the conference, videos of speakers will be shared online and presentations were put online afterwards – https://www.visionuk.org.uk/category/library/
The conference was held on the 6th floor of the Wellcome Trust, Gibbs Building. Volunteers from Rare Dementia Support, Alzheimer’s Society, Blind Veterans UK, RNIB and Thomas Pocklington Trust supported Vision UK staff with registration and the swift and effective guidance of delegates to and from the conference floor as well as support throughout the day.
