CCSMH News - Senate Committee publication on dementia

05 Dec 2016 10:47 AM | CAGP (Administrator)

The Senate has published their report on Dementia this past week with 29 recommendations. Dr. Marie-France Rivard had presented to this committee on behalf of the CAGP, Bonnie Schroeder had done so on behalf of CCSMH, and Dr. Frank Molnar spoke on behalf of CGS, along with several other respected speakers. There is also a link to an executive summary of the report and an information pamphlet on dementia and its impact. Thanks to all the participants for their contribution.

The Senate are putting together a short video about this initiative which I have participated in which will be available soon. 

Please see the report here: http://www.parl.gc.ca/content/sen/committee/421/SOCI/Reports/SOCI_6thReport_DementiaInCanada-WEB_e.pdf

Also interesting relative document: http://sencaplus.ca/news/national-dementia-strategy-needed-to-foster-dementia-friendly-communities  

It is anticipated that these initiatives will lead to a better quality of life for Canadians living with dementia. Please distribute this information widely to gain traction and increase its impact. Thank you. 

Best regards, 

Kiran Rabheru MD, CCFP, FRCP, DABPN
