Event 7 January 2020: Developing a vision and plan for personalised dementia care

Date: Tuesday 7 January 2020
Time: 10am – 4.30pm
Venue: Leonardo Royal City Hotel, London

The next Dementia Choices Action Network (DCAN) full assembly will be held on Tuesday 7 January 2020.

DCAN is a newly formed joint initiative from the Alzheimer’s Society, NHS England and Improvement, and the Coalition for Collaborative Care. Its mission is to ensure that as many people as possible affected by dementia benefit from high quality, personalised care.

The focus of the assembly event on the 7th January will be on exploring what ‘good’ personalised dementia care looks like and what needs to happen to make this a reality.

An agenda for the day can be found here. It will be an interactive event with lots of opportunities for discussion and ideas. We will be looking at all six areas of personalised care of NHS England’s Comprehensive Model for Personalised Care, including: Shared Decision Making; Choice; Personalised Care and Support Planning; Social Prescribing; Supported Self-Management; and Personal Health Budgets and Integrated Budgets. We will also be framing discussions in the context of Universal Personalised Care and the NHS Well Pathway for Dementia.

The day will be an opportunity to co-produce a vision for DCAN and the outcomes will be used to inform a DCAN Dementia Plan for Universal Personalised Care.

During the course of the day, participants will also hear about the good practice and innovation work that is taking place at a national and local level and practical examples of how personalised care has worked for people with dementia.

To ensure we keep the event manageable and give people the best opportunity to contribute and to have their voice heard, we have a maximum number of 60 places available. We also want to have a representative mix of people from across sectors on the day, including people affected by dementia and those in frontline and managerial roles.


At this stage, we are asking people to register their interest and confirm which areas of personalised care they are interested in and/or have expertise/experience of.

Participants will be split into six groups for facilitated discussions on one area but there will be opportunities to contribute to the other areas during breaks.

To express your interest, please complete this form. We will be confirming places, allocated table discussions and an agenda no later than Monday 16 December.

We hope that you are able to join us for this event. Please also feel free to share this invite with your own networks.
