Local Dementia Academic Action Group (DAAG) success and approach
Dementia awareness training
Central to our success is partnership. We are a membership organisation, led by a board made up of representatives from our local providers of healthcare. We are committed to ensuring stakeholders from across the Thames Valley have the opportunity to influence our priorities and our work. The quarterly Partnership Council here in the Thames Valley office is a formal stakeholder advisory body to the Board, bringing together the widest representation from across our region to discuss key issues concerning the health and care workforce, their education, training and development and how we can work together. Meetings are open to all local stakeholders, with representation invited from NHS providers and commissioners, private and charitable organisations, education institutions and importantly, from patient and carer organisations.
The meetings are used to both inform local stakeholders and engage them in our work, while also consulting on specific issues and priorities to ensure our work is meeting local needs. We also have a strong link to the Board, with a formal report being presented at Board meetings. Attendance at Partnership Council requires registration in advance.If you more like to know more please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
