RCN Public Debate

06 Jun 2019 19:00 - 22:00

The Tolbooth, Jail Wynd, Stirling, FK8 1DE


Annual RCN Public Debate
What health care and social care would you or could you expect to be available for people living with dementia and their families? And how can access to appropriate nursing care be ensured?

Join us for an evening of discussion and debate on current and future approaches to dementia care in Scotland, and the key role nursing plays in hospitals and our communities. 

Hear from our expert panel of speakers, including perspectives from people with dementia, carers, social care and nursing - including: 

  • Professor Debbie Tolson, Alzheimer Scotland Professor of Dementia & Director of the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice.
  • Helen Skinner, Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Nurse Consultant, NHS Fife 
  • Archie Noone, Scottish Dementia Working Group member
  • Muriel Reid, National Dementia Carers Action Network member
  • Joanna Macdonald, Chief Officer, Argyll & Bute Health and Social Care Partnership, and Chair of the Social Work Scotland Adult Social Care Committee.

Take part in the audience Q&A and discussion with our panel, chaired by dementia expert Professor June Andrews.

Refreshments will be provided.

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible with a lift to all floors. There is a hearing loop in the Auditorium.  We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event.  Assistance dogs are welcome, however some of the flooring is metal with holes in it, which can be problematic for claws. There is a ramp in to the Auditorium from the loading bay that might be easier to use. If you have any other needs, please email us at scotland.library@rcn.org.uk and we will assist you wherever possible.
