In the period Nov 16th-18th took place, in the virtual place, the 2nd Krems Dementia Conference in Austria - „Dealing with Dementia: Prevention, Timely Detection and Awareness”, event that captured a variety of dementia related topics.

Similar to the first Krems conference last year, the focus was on Dementia in Southeastern Europe.

A lot of other presentations had as focus best-practices to meet the challenge of COVID-19 in dementia care.

Our INDEED project was brought into attention by Lea Pfäffel and Alexander Kurz, Technical University of Munich - School of Medicine, Germany, through the presentation „Interprofessional educational intervention in the Danube Region”.

The presentation syntethised the main aspects of INDEED project, starting with its first steps, in 2017, when dementia experts from ten South Eastern European countries teamed up with policy makers and businesses to develop and pilot an educational intervention that addresses multiple professions from the health and social sectors. The goal was to provide a joint knowledge base on person-centred, holistic dementia care, and a platform for collaboration.

The project results were emphasized - the intervention is now available in a blended-learning format consisting of in-person workshops and an e-learning programme in five languages (English, Bulgarian, Slovenian, Slovakian, Romanian).

The INDEED presentation was very succesfull. The participants were interested about the previous workshops in Slovenia, asking questions related to them.
