Demens ID – project 

In one of the work packages of Demens ID we explore and test the potential uses of literature and other artistic media in training individuals exposed to dementia in making better ethical decisions in dementia care. We develop methods using literary fiction as tool in ethical decision-making among carers of dementia patients. The interdisciplinary project is led by Sigurd Rønnow at the Danish National Institute for Public Health.

Project is starting in June 2020.
