Dementias Conference 2021

23rd National Conference

Thursday 8 & Friday 9 July 2021, America Square Conference Centre, London
Dear Colleagues,

We have made the decision to push back the 23rd National Dementias conference to July 2021 but we are looking forward to welcoming you then to what will be an excellent event. 

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.

Key themes for 2021 include: 
  • 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 
We are working closely with Cavendish venues to ensure appropriate social distancing measures will be in place as the health and safety of staff, speakers and attendees is our highest priority. Here are some of the safety measures you can expect to see at Dementias 2021: Covid-19.

Whether you have been before, perhaps several times, or whether you will be a new attendee, you'll find this 23rd conference will be informative, interactive and enjoyable. 

We look forward to seeing you in London in July 2021!

Professor Alistair Burns, CBE & Professor John O'Brien
