On behalf of everyone at the DSDC and the University of Stirling we would like to wish Shirley Law all the very best for her new adventure, as she leaves the University on 16th March. 

Shirley started with the DSDC in 2007, originally on a secondment from her Charge Nurse post in a dementia assessment unit in Perthshire. During her secondment Shirley developed the Best Practice in Dementia Care Learning Programme which has now trained thousands of front line care staff. This innovative programme has made a huge difference to people with dementia and those who support and care for them. 

We would like to acknowledge the outstanding contribution Shirley has made in her field, and to the reputation of the University in dementia care worldwide. We wish her every success in her future ventures and send her our warmest support for the times to come.
