Catholic Healthcare was delighted to host its second Insight Exchange dinner in Sydney with special guest Professor Susan Kurrle.

Professor Kurrle is Geriatrician and Director of the Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre, who was most recently seen on the intergenerational experiment and ABC series Old People’s Home for Four Year Olds.

The Insight Exchange dinner provided an opportunity for health professionals working in the aged care sector, along with representatives from Catholic Healthcare, to network, listen and discuss Professor Kurrle’s presentation on Preparing and Managing Cognitive Impairment.

The Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre (CDPC) focuses on research and implementation into improving care for people with dementia. Professor Kurrle shared insights into the work of the CDPC including the development of a set of Dementia Clinical Practice Guidelines and a Consumer Companion Guide providing practical guidance for consumers living with dementia.

Links to the Dementia Clinical Practice Guidelines and Consumer Companion Guide can be found on the Dementia Australia website.

Catholic Healthcare thanks Professor Kurrle for sharing her expert insights and recommendations to improving care for older people with cognitive and related functional impairment.
