The first event takes place from 9.30am to 1.30pm. The first session will provide an update on our speech therapy clinical education program, to be followed by a session by Prof. Brendan Weekes on cognitive testing for individuals with brain damage. This will be followed by two sessions focused on individuals with dementia. Ms Nancy Tang, an occupational therapist from the Jockey Club Centre for Positive Ageing, will speak on cognitive deficits and Dr Man Fun Edward Leung, President of the Hong Kong Association of Gerontology, will speak on end-of-life care and management of feeding-related issues.

The second event takes place from 2.30 to 5pm. It will be presented by Professor Sam Po Law (HKU), Dr Anthony Kong (University of Central Florida, USA), and Ms Winsy Wong (HKU). They will present information on clinical techniques and strategies of language rehabilitation, based on research findings from the Cantonese AphasiaBank, with healthcare professionals working with people with aphasia. It is open nurses, social workers, speech therapists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, free-of-charge.
