The Royal Society of Public Health will stage the next in its series of online webinars on the theme of ‘Movement, Dance and the Neurodegenerative Condition’ on 5 July 2016. Chaired by Julian C. Hughes, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Newcastle University, speakers will include Dr Richard Coaten, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Dr Sara Houston, University of Roehampton.

Among the questions to be addressed will be:

  • How and why are movement and dance so important to people with Dementia and Parkinson’s disease?
  • And if movement and dance do help increase wellbeing, mobility, movement range, social interaction, balance, co-ordination, gait and much more, what might the similarities and differences be when applied in differing contexts?
  • Can practitioners of movement and dance in the field of dementia learn from those in the field of Parkinson’s disease and vice versa?
