Dementia Workshop (Cochrane Dementia and Cognitive Improvement Review Group)


The Cochrane Dementia and Cognitive Improvement Review Group are developing an online course, entitled “Making Sense of the Evidence in Dementia”. This course is available freely to everyone, only an internet connection being required. The course aims to assist volunteers who may wish to become involved, and also to educate interested laypeople and health or social services professionals about the evidence in dementia.

The Cochrane Dementia and Cognitive Improvement Review Group are holding a free workshop to launch the course on 17 February 2011, at Kellogg College in Oxford, which is targeted primarily at carers and former carers.

For more information about volunteering, the forthcoming workshop, or the online course, contact (or phone 01865 234606). Quotation:

“…we would particularly like to encourage all Cochrane contributors to pass information about this volunteering opportunity and the online course, either to clinicians or other medical professionals who have contact with dementia sufferers and their carers, or directly to friends, relations and colleagues who might be interested in getting involved.

For volunteers in the Thames Valley area – although anyone from further afield would be very welcome – we will be running a launch workshop for carers and former carers on 17 February 2011 at Kellogg College in Oxford. The workshop promises to be an inspiring and inspirational event, and will be run by Amanda Burls (Director of Postgraduate Programmes in Evidence-Based Health Care, University of Oxford) and Sally Crowe (James Lind Alliance).
