Several expert researchers/academics in co-design with people living with dementia participated in the group. The following research questions where explored throughout the workshop:

 What is co-design?

What are the key ingredients of successful co-design?

What are the challenges, limitations and benefits of co-designing with people with dementia?

Where can co-design sessions be implemented within the context of working with people with dementia, where not?

Can co-design methods be adapted to allow sustained engagement with PWD throughout their dementia journey?

Which are the best practices for co-designing/co-creating with people living with dementia?

Workshop participants employed a range of tools during the activities to respond to the aforementioned questions and developed a list of best practices. A full report on this will be published soon.
