Good care after a diagnosis is vital - but how is care provided once someone has received a diagnosis? And what are the differences between the UK and Canada? In this episode, I am joined by Leah Rickards, Admiral Nurse, and Dr Robert Madan, Geriatric Psychiatrist.
Leah is an Admiral Nurse for the Royal British Legion. Admiral Nurses originate from Dementia UK, and if you need support, have a look at their website for more info. Leah is also active on twitter: @ericrickards
Robert is a Geriatric Psychiatrist and an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, Canada. Dr. Madan is the Psychiatrist-in-Chief and Deputy Chief of Staff at Baycrest, and is involved clinically in long-term care consultation, and outpatient psychiatry. His academic interests are in the areas of medical education and dementia. Robert is also the Chair of the Products and Services Committee for the International Psychogeriatrics Association.
