Karen Rennie visited Wollongong in March 2019 to present her ‘Understanding expression of sexuality for persons with dementia’ seminar.
Listen to her interview with ABC Illawarra here: Part 1 / Part 2

PhD candidate and Research Assistant, Karen Rennie RN, is passionate about ensuring that the nursing care for older persons and persons living with dementia is of a high standard. In her PhD she is exploring how nurses can provide person-centred care when looking after persons living with dementia who express themselves sexually. In 2017, along with two co-authors, she published a literature review on this subject, which highlighted the strong need to future research and more person-centred nursing care within this area.
