Public talk on Dementia
The Public Talk for Dementia was held at the Federation Lecture Hall on 30 September 2017. It was our pleasure and privilege to invite two Clinical Associate Professors from the University of Hong Kong to be the speakers. Dr Joseph Kwan, Clinical Associate Professor in Geriatric Medicine in the Department of Medicine, provided a comprehensive overview of causes, symptoms and treatments of dementia. Dr. Chan Wai Chi, Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, delivered a talk on the behavioural and psychological aspects of dementia, and gave some effective suggestions to patients and family caregivers for handling behavioural and psychological symptoms. Over 110 participants attended the seminar and the interested audience raised many questions for the speakers in the Q&A section.
