1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

The LPC would use its communication channels to all the Pharmacies it represents, to disseminate and promote all aspects of the Dementia Action Alliance objectives relevant to the patients and customers these Pharmacies serve in the course of their daily routines of care and support.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Uptake of the communicated advice and information by those Pharmacies. Turning these Pharmacies into pro-active dememntia awareness centres rather than passive would be seen as the greatest challenge to the LPC.
