ADA Academy has invited Professor Dawn Brooker and Ms Isabelle Latham to provide a series of lectures/workshops in Person-centred Care in September 2019. Professor Brooker is a recognised author, practitioner and researcher in practice development of person-centred dementia care. Together with Ms Latham, their work on the Care Fit for VIPS toolkit will enable service providers including centre-based care and residential care facilities, to truly implement Person-Centred Care from the organisational perspective.
Professor Dawn Brooker is the Director of the Association for Dementia Studies (ADS) an association established in 2009.

She is internationally recognised for scholarship in practice development of person-centred dementia care and has long established working relationships with practitioners and scholars worldwide. In 2019, she published an updated edition of Kitwood’s seminal work on person-centred dementia care: Kitwood, T. and Brooker, D. (Editor) (2019).
