The iPad Research Project for Dementia Care is looking at how technology can support more patient- and family-centred care for dementia patients at Vancouver General Hospital. The project is being led by Lillian Hung, Clinical Nurse Specialist at Vancouver General Hospital, who is working with several CEAN members – people living with dementia as well as family members and caregivers. The project will utilize an iPad to record messages from family members to play for their loved ones who are in hospital to help alleviate stress that persons with dementia may have while in a clinical environment. The team is creating a “toolkit/guide” to help family members/caregivers record their message in the form of a brochure.

CEAN member Christine Wallsworth is supporting the project and has requested that we ask CEAN members to review this document to ensure that it is clear and informative. For more information about this initiative, please click here to view an explanation by another CEAN member, Mario Gregorio: https://youtu.be/2uHbeAS03nw

The team needs your eyes to help review the document and make sure it provides information in a way that is easy to understand and family-centred. There are no specific criteria for you to participate in this review!

Please contact ce@vch.ca if you have any questions. Thank you!
