Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign – launch day

Join us for the launch of the Cognitive Impairment Campaign.

This is a vitally important campaign which will raise standards of care for people entering hospital with cognitive impairment, including the prevention, recognition and treatment of delirium

Cognitive impairment, delirium or dementia are common among older people admitted to hospital but are frequently missed or misdiagnosed increasing their risk of harm.

Delirium can be prevented with the right care and harm minimised if cognitive impairment is identified and acted on early.

We can all make a difference

Guest speakers will include:

Julia Squire
Chief Executive Officer, CALHN
Brett Partington
Dr. Faizal Ibrahim
Consultant Geriatrician, CALHN
Fiona Mackenzie
Executive Director of Nursing, CALHN


Date: Friday 27 May 2016

Launch: 1.00pm – 2.00pm
Afternoon Tea: 2.00pm onwards
Robson Lecture Theatre, Level 1,

What The Hell Happened To My Brain?… by Kate Swaffer


Last Thursday (April 28), at Dymock’s Burnside Village was the launch of Kate’s book – “What the Hell Happened to my Brain.”

Chairman of Dignity in Care, Andrew Larpent spoke about Kate’s commitment to her advocacy and activism (on an international scale) in regard to all matters relating to dementia. We congratulate Kate on her passion and endeavour and wish her all the best with the new book.

Many books were purchased and personally signed by Kate on the night.

A great read is guaranteed…..
