Event details:

With the current ageing population, dementia is becoming more prevalent and it is estimated that by 2025, around a million people in the UK will have dementia. Now is the time to coordinate how we maximise outcomes for patients, carers, health and social care systems to better identify at risk individuals to help delay onset and impact of disease, manage symptoms, discover and develop new treatments and help patients maintain their independence.

The One Nucleus, Cambridge Wireless and Eastern AHSN meeting will bring together presentations from innovative approaches spanning diagnostics, drug development, medtech and digital technologies to apply to the multidisciplinary prevention and care of dementia patients.

It should appeal to anyone within these sectors with an interest in dementia research or enthusiasts of cross sector collaboration to solve national healthcare challenges.
