Dementias 2021

About This Conference

Improving the Diagnosis and Management of Dementia in a Post-Covid World

As we have all adapted to a new way of working, prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that ensuring that people with dementia get the best possible management is more important than ever.

The Dementias series, already an essential event in the calendar of all those with an interest in any aspect of dementia, provides the ideal opportunity for an evidence based update on recent best practice for dementia diagnosis, management and care.

We have put together an agenda that will allow plenty of time to exchange ideas and network over the two days.

All the sessions will be available to view on-demand from Monday 12 July. Click each session to view the recordings.
