International Silver Conference, Zamora
On Saturday 27thNovember we presented the INTenSE project during the International Silver Conference in Zamora, Spain. The project aims were presented, and also the concept of self-experience and methods to promote self-experience. There was interest in the project and also the web platform and what it could look like.
Multiplier event, Germany
The team of the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg conducted two multiplier events to disseminate the INTenSE project work. One multiplier event took place within the institution itself. A second event was organized with an interested organization within their research network, a family center. This institution is responsible for a self-help group of people with dementia.
The participants of both multiplier events were researchers and professionals as well as people with dementia and their relatives.
At each of the two multiplier events we presented selected results of the first part of the INTenSE project, which we thought would be interesting for the individual target group. For example, at the second multiplier event with people with dementia and their informal caregivers we explained the findings on the needs and wishes of the people with dementia, that we identified in our interviews and literature research.
The fruitful exchange with both groups resulted in suggestions and ideas for implementation. In summary, the participants of the two multiplier events were very interested in the contents of our research project.
In the upcoming year we will work on the co-design of the Dementia Simulation Toolkit, and the co-creation of the INTenSE web platform. In each partners’ country we will therefore organize three co-design workshops together with professionals, informal caregivers, and people with dementia. These workshops will run from January until march 2022.
We are looking forward to meeting everyone and learning about how to make our platform better for a wide range of perspectives.
