Congratulations to Margaret Callaghan from our final year Masters in Gerontology and Later Life Programme on the publication of her article Creating Positive Experiences for People Living with Dementia in Care Homes which was published in “Nursing Older People” yesterday. The article was written with support given by her supervisor Dr Louise Ritchie. You can access the article at the following website but to download it you need to be an RCNi account holder (Sorry).
If you wait a week or two you might be able to ask Louise or Margaret for a copy.
Other things to note this week. There is a pioneering project being conducted by Digital Health and care Scotland and the ALLIANCE called ‘Our GP’. The project aims to ‘co-design’ future digital GP services. An important first step in this process was the launch of a showcase website on the 1st of February which you can view at OUR GP Website
You can access the website from any device, at any time between 1 and 16 February 2017. If you do take the survey and leave your views to help shape a new service across Scotland.
