Time for Dementia: Celebrating 10 Years

Monday 18 March 2024, 11am-12.30pm UK time, online via Zoom: Join us for a special webinar commemorating a decade of dedication to dementia awareness, education and support.

Dear colleagues,

We are excited to announce the upcoming celebration of the 10th anniversary of Time for Dementia (TfD).

TfD was launched at BSMS in 2014, with the aim to prepare the future NHS workforce with the knowledge, attitudes, and empathy needed to provide high quality and compassionate care to people with dementia and their families.

Since then, the programme has expanded across the South of England, and more than 8,000 students and 2,100 families have taken part. The programme is now delivered across ten different training programmes at eight universities to students on courses including Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Radiography, Paramedic Practice and Dietetics.

You can read more about TfD on the BSMS website >
Our webinar will feature talks from the founders of TfD, and the families and BSMS graduates who have been involved and benefited from the programme during the past decade. Join us to reflect on the past, celebrate our achievements and find out how we are continuing to drive forward the future of dementia education.
