Drivinganddementia.AboutmainpageDriving and Dementia Workshop

The University of Wollongong in partnership with the Dementia Training Study Centres (DTSC) will be conducting a lecture on Driving and Dementia mid year for GPs, Nurses and Allied Health professionals.

This event will increase participants’ knowledge and understanding of approaches to dementia and driving retirement. Participants will learn how to support informed decisions by individuals with early dementia diagnosis, in partnership with their GPs, other practitioners, family members and carers.

A Dementia and Driving Decision Aid has been developed and translated into several other languages including Vietnamese, Italian, Greek and Chinese.

Following on from the success of several workshops held last year in Warrnambool (VIC), Maroochydore, (QLD), Merimbula and Katoomba (NSW).

When: 5.30pm - 7pm, Monday 3rd July, 2017.  This lecture will be video conferenced from UOW's main campus to our other campuses in Loftus, Bega, Batemans Bay, South Sydney and Shoalhaven.

Where: Further details will be confirmed shortly.

Past Events

SMIG EventGlobal warming and recurrent mass coral
bleaching 

Professor Terry Hughes (pictured right) is the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and ARC Laureate Fellow at James Cook University, Townsville. In December 2016 he was recognised by Nature Magazine as one of the ten people who mattered this year. His cover feature on Mass Coral Bleaching in Nature is out now.

In this seminar, Prof Hughes will discuss how recent record temperatures have triggered a pan-tropical episode of coral bleaching, the third largest event on a global scale since mass bleaching was first documented in 80s. Unprecedented bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef in 1998, 2002 and now 2016, calls for immediate global action to curb future warming, if we are to secure a future for our coral reefs.

Date: Thursday 6th April, 2017
