Compartmentalised & routinised care CREATES resistance in patients w/ dementia. Talk by @Drkfeatherstone
Medical assessment of people with dementia admitted to acute care settings. Fascinating ethnography
Strong argument from @dr_loreleijones - the need to think about what sort of 'impact' we value and want to have. Brilliant!
