Tune in on Thursday to hear a something unusual for any radio programme –– a live evaluation of the programme by an independent consultant. Rachel Litherland of Innovations in Dementia has been following the development of EVA Radio, as well as the other strands of the EVA project, in order to help AHA evaluate their effectiveness. The entire EVA Producers Team will be taking part in this evaluation and discussion process with Rachel on Thursday. Listen in and find out more about the reasons behind the EVA project and about working in new and innovative ways with those who have dementia.
Listen live at 102.5fm in the Dartington/Totnes area, listen live on-line from 11am to 12pm at Soundart Radio here, or find the podcast here and listen at a time which suits you (usually available within 24 hours).
