What health care professionals are saying

Receiving training in the latest research on diagnosis and management of these issues will be of great benefit to me now and into the future…Overall, the training was not only useful, but it was engaging, professionally executed, clear and concise. I am grateful for the experience and look forward to implementing the knowledge gained to benefit my patients and their families.

Dr. T.R, Ontario

I really liked that the material was evidence-based and practical and will be directly applicable to several of my patients with dementia. The case studies were helpful to reinforce the material that was covered. The course has increased my confidence in diagnosing and managing patients with dementia and will help improve the care that I provide.

Dr. WVH, Ontario

Thanks again for the outstanding and inspirational training. Very impressive and I look forward to using the new skills in the clinic.

Dr. J.T., British Columbia

This was by far one of the most interesting learning sessions I have done in dementia care!

H.W., RN, British Columbia

There was just such a lovely mix of didactic learning, group interaction, and problem-solving, that I feel I gained so much from all the hard work the MINT team put into the training sessions. Truly one of the best education sessions I've EVER attended!

Dr. S.R., Ontario

You guys were amazing! So much material but so well presented!!! Thank you all so much!!!

K.G., NP, Ontario

The MINT memory clinic provided me with valuable, therapeutic strategies to engage effectively and with empathy with those living with dementia and their loved ones. The training was exceptional and allowed me to feel confident knowing that I was using a proven technique for providing effective and timely care. Although a diagnosis of dementia can be devastating, the team approach ensures holistic patient-centred care is achieved and all concerns are acknowledged with sensitivity and professionalism. As a geriatric nurse, I appreciated this experience and would highly recommend it to others without hesitation.

D.D., RN, Alberta

Thank you, Dr. Lee. Life-changing course.

The MINT Memory Clinic Model of Care

From the first referral to follow-up, MINT Memory Clinic teams work within a shared care approach with the patient's family physician. Patients with memory concerns are referred by their family physician to a MINT Memory Clinic for comprehensive assessment and care planning. The MINT Memory Clinic provides a detailed and proactive care plan to the family physician and refers to specialists when necessary.
