Our third blog to support our members, and Dementia Awareness Week Scotland is a follow up to yesterdays blog, about the STRiDE Project. This webinar is an update of the progress the STRiDE research team have made since the kick off Workshops and meetings that Eileen reported on yesterday, highlighting just how far they have come, and perhaps even some of the challenges to be faced ahead.
Wednesday, June 27, 2018 (USA/CA/UK/EU)
Thursday, June 28, 2018 (AU/NZ/JP/SGP/TWN)
Please note: this is one event, set in a number of different time zones.
About Adelina: Adelina is an Assistant Professorial Research Fellow at the Personal Social Services Research Unit at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her main research interests are economic aspects of care, treatment and support of people with dementia, and long-term care financing.
Adelina is the co-lead of the Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Developing Countries (STRiDE) project, a multi-national research project funded by the Research Councils UK’s Global Challenges Research Fund involving Brazil, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, and South Africa.
She also works on the “Modelling Dementia” (MODEM) project which aims to estimate the impact, in terms of costs and quality of life, of making interventions that are known to work for people with dementia and their care partners more widely available.
Adelina is a member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Guideline Development Group for Risk reduction guidelines for cognitive decline and dementia and a consultant for WHO’s Department of Ageing and Life Course.
She was also a co-author of the World Alzheimer Report 2016.
Adelaine says: I first learnt about dementia through my grandfather, he moved in with my parents when he needed more support, but loved going back to his own seaside home whenever I could take a holiday.
About the Webinar: Approximately 50 million people globally are estimated to live with dementia, and about two-thirds live in low-and-middle income countries (LMIC).
Everywhere, dementia is a major cause of disability among older people and can have a huge impact on their quality of life, particularly if adequate treatment, care and support is not available.
Provision of care and support for people living with dementia can be socially and economically very costly. These costs are mostly borne by family members, particularly women and girls. However, in the face of demographic, societal and economic changes, there are indications that nations can no longer rely only on this informal family care for people with dementia. LMICs need to develop evidence-informed responses to dementia prevention, treatment and care.
The STRiDE (Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Developing Countries) project aims to build capacity in dementia research, in order to support the development of national policies for dementia.
The project brings together researchers and Alzheimer’s Associations from seven LMIC countries: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, and South Africa, and from the UK. The project is a partnership with Alzheimer’s Disease International and Dementia Alliance International, who are supporting the involvement of people with dementia in the project.
Please note: this webinar may not be made publicly available after the event; the Q & A sessions are never made publicly available to view.
