CDRAKE has partnered with the Alzheimer Knowledge Exchange (AKE) to develop a Community of Practice (CoP) on the topic of Self-Management in Dementia. The AKE & CDRAKE Self-Management in Dementia CoP will address misconceptions and ensure effective use of self-management support strategies by health and social service providers and others who support people living with dementia by:
- Bringing together those with an interest in advancing self-management in dementia
- Increasing awareness about self-management in dementia
- Identifying existing self-management interventions and deciding how they could be used or adapted in the context of dementia
- Developing learning opportunities and tools to promote the use of self-management interventions that support people living with dementia to play an active role in their own care.
