Gary has improved the nursing care of people with dementia in Northern Ireland through education, policy and practice. His Dementia Friends workshops at Queens University Belfast were so successful that the package has now been included in the undergraduate nursing curriculum. Gary was lead author in the Northern Ireland Dementia Learning and Development Framework, meeting 150 stakeholders to gather feedback on what people needed to know. The report will be published in June.
