Register Here
(Free for members and nonmembers).

If you are interested in research related to workers who are identified as having mild cognitive impairment or early onset dementia, you are encouraged to attend! This workshop will feature a talk by Dr. Louise Ritchie, followed by a short Q&A facilitated by members of a Canadian-Australian working group exploring a joint research agenda. This workshop will discuss the current research on dementia in the workplace in order to explore the supports required to facilitate continued employment and decision-making around employment post diagnosis. Using practical examples, we will highlight the potential factors which could promote a positive employment experience for those living with dementia.
