    Event description

    Childhood Dementia Initiative and the Rare Care Centre invite Western Australian families to take part in a special consultation in Perth that centres on really listening to families affected by childhood dementia. Its unique format will allow you to cover the topics that matter most to you and give you the chance to have conversations with other families.

    The Perth Long Table: Exploring the Issues in Health will focus on experiences accessing state-specific health care and support services. The goal is to unearth challenges and opportunities for change. The β€˜long table’ method allows for free-flowing, frank conversation.Β 

    Present on the day to listen and learn will be key stakeholders ranging from researches, to those working across paediatric and adult settings, the NDIS, education, allied health, clinical nursing and palliative care.Β 

    This session is being presented in partnership by Childhood Dementia Initiative and the Rare Care Centre.

    Who should register

    We are hoping to hear from a broad range of families who are based in Western Australia including:

    • Families who love a child or children alive today with a childhood dementia condition
    • Bereaved families
    • First Nations families
    • Families from metropolitan, regional and rural locations
    • Culturally and linguistically diverse families
    • Families who have recently received a diagnosis
    • Families in post-diagnostic care
    • Those whose child(ren) is/are transitioning from paediatric to adult services
