Alzheimer Scotland Annual Conference 2019
The annual conference will delve into the advances of current dementia research, as well as exploring the innovative support available to provide better care for people living with dementia today.
For the first time ever, the conference is offering practical workshops that have been specifically tailored for people living with dementia and carers which will provide take-home advice and ideas, as well as an opportunity to attend one of our new one-to-one clinics to discuss what matters to you.
The day will feature panel discussions and presentations that will investigate the key aspects of risk reduction and why dementia care should be free; and ask pertinent questions of the Government about Scotland’s commitment to dementia research.
The breakout presentations will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn more about the pioneering improvements in specialist dementia care and acute care, along with showcasing the outcomes of innovative dementia research projects in the ongoing quest to find a cure.
Speakers will include prominent dementia researchers including Professor Craig Ritchie (Chair of the Psychiatry of Ageing and Director of the Centre for Dementia Prevention at the University of Edinburgh) and Dr Tom Russ (Co-Director of the Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Research Centre), along with experts from Alzheimer’s Research UK, the National Institute for Health Research and the Centre for Policy and Practice at the University of the West of Scotland.
With over 500 delegates in attendance and 50 exhibitions for you to browse, this is sure to be the most thought provoking conference for Scotland’s dementia community. You’ll leave inspired with new information, support and ideas that will help us all in our ambition to prevent now, care today, cure tomorrow.
