Dementias Conference 2022

24th National Conference

Thursday 10 & Friday 11 February 2022, Cavendish Conference Centre, London
We can't wait to welcome you to the 24th National Dementias conference in February 2022.

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 are busy putting the final touches on an agenda that will allow plenty of time to exchange ideas and network over the two days.

Here are some key themes from the 2021 conference: 
  • The impact of Covid-19 on dementia practice
  • Early progress towards dementia prevention
  • Driving and dementia
  • The importance of hearing and vision
  • CSF biomarkers and imaging 
  • Post diagnosis carer support
  • Mental capacity assessments
  • What can epidemiology tell us about dementia
  • An update on genetics and dementia
  • Frontotemporal dementia
  • Lewy body dementia
  • Dementia and delirium
  • Stroke and dementia
  • Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia
  • Palliative care 

Whether you have been before, perhaps several times, or whether you will be a new attendee, you'll find this 24th conference will be informative, interactive and enjoyable. 

We look forward to seeing you in London in February 2022!

Professor Alistair Burns, CBE & Professor John O'Brien
