Staffs Fire & Rescue
Humanoid returned to Staffordshire television studio this Friday to shoot and broadcast a live conference by Staffordshire University’s Centre for Ageing and Mental Health.
The event – the latest in a series of dementia talks, was transmitted to an online audience and focused on the role Fire and Rescue Services can play in improving the health and wellbeing of dementia sufferers and carers in the community.
The conference featured a number of guest speakers with expertise in the field, and was attended by representatives from Kent, West Midlands and Staffordshire Fire Services. Speakers from Staffordshire University described research in the development of dementia educational tools and a mobile application to provide Fire and Rescue officers with guidelines and procedures for identifying early signs of dementia, while doing preventative work in the community.
Both morning talks concluded with a live question and answer session, in which the panel of speakers addressed questions from the audience in the studio and viewers online. Humanoid’s coverage of the conference is available on DVD from Staffordshire University’s Faculty of Health.
