Buddy programme enables researchers to meet people with dementia
Wednesday 17 March 2010
A buddy programme has been developed in the US (Northwestern University, Chicago) whereby researchers and medical students are able to meet people with dementia in an informal setting. Although the meetings are brief, it is hoped that the sessions enable dialogue and a greater understanding between each other.
