DISTINCT stands for “dementia: intersectorial strategy for training and innovation network for current technology”.
The main aim of DISTINCT was to develop a premier quality multi-disciplinary, multi-professional and intersectorial education and training research framework for Europe.
The unique academic and non-academic collaborative partnership of DISTINCT comprised of 13 world leading research organisations across 8 European countries, 9 partners who included Alzheimer Europe, Alzheimer Disease International, the World Federation of Occupational Therapists and 3 small or medium-sized enterprises for technology and dementia care. The University of Nottingham (United Kingdom) managed the DISTINCT programme.
The Guidance document “Best Practice Guidance Human interaction with technology in dementia” was developed in the context of the INDUCT project and updated by DISTINCT. The document is available at: https://www.dementiainduct.eu/guidance/
