Dementia: Innovation

  • Thursday, 03 July 2014
  • The Barbican Centre, London
  • 08:30 - 16:45
  • Overview

There are currently 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK and 44 million globally – a figure which is expected to treble by 2050. It costs the UK over £23bn per annum – more than cancer, stroke and heart disease combined. There is no denying the extent of the problem and the need for a committed focus on tackling the issues. The government has recognised that poor diagnosis, along with low levels of understanding and awareness of dementia, have contributed to a national crisis.

This conference is for anyone involved with or affected by dementia wishing to hear the latest developments. It will bring together professionals from health and social care, academia, and the wider public, private and third sectors with those living with dementia, providing a rare chance to engage with and learn from each other. Delegates will have the opportunity to listen, digest, debate and then reflect on information that will make a difference to their professional or personal lives.
