Dementia and… the importance of expert nurses with Karen Harrison-Dening

These videos were prepared by F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd in collaboration with Neurology Academy. They were funded by F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd.

Prof Karen Harrison-Dening, Head of Research and Publications at Dementia UK examines the role of the admiral nurse in supporting people living with dementia and their families.

The role of specialist nurses and the value they add is becoming better understood across a number of other conditions, yet often the breadth and complexity of the admiral nurse role, and the varied and essential support they provide to individuals and their families, is under-recognised.

Karen provides a clear overview of their role and discusses the varied and individualised case management they undertake for people affected by dementia across the UK.
