Join us on Friday 10 November 2023 at the Royal College of Physicians and online!

Alzheimer’s Research UK’s annual Clinical Conference is an opportunity for clinicians to hear about the latest developments in clinical practice and progress in the dementia research field.

We were delighted to welcome more than 120 delegates in person and online in 2022,  and hope to see old and new faces again this year!

More information about this year’s event will be announced shortly. In the meantime, read our reflections from the 2022 Clinical Conference and enjoy watching a selection of last year’s presentations below!

Managing challenges in diagnosis, with Dr Ross Paterson & Dr John Baker

Diagnosis is one of the major challenges faced in clinical practice and dementia research, with late and misdiagnosis leading to delays in accessing the right care as well as opportunities to take part in research. Having the correct diagnosis will be critical to ensuring that people living with dementia can benefit from life-changing treatments when these become available.

Read more about the importance of early and accurate diagnosis, including our Dementia Diagnosis Explainer.

In this video, Dr Ross Paterson speaks about how cerebo-spinal fluid markers can be used in diagnosis and Dr John Baker discusses the challenges of multiple comorbidities.

Tackling inequalities in a diverse dementia population, with Dr Charles Marshall & Dr Shahid Zaman

Some groups within our society are more heavily impacted by dementia, either through being more at risk of the diseases that cause dementia or because they are more likely to experience poorer health outcomes. Understanding more about these inequalities enables us to take steps to address them in clinical practice, public policy and research.

In the session recording below, Dr Charles Marshall discusses the role of ethnicity and deprivation, while Dr Shahid Zaman considers the key issues in dementia in Down’s Syndrome.

For another perspective on this theme, you can read our report The Impact of Dementia on Women, for whom dementia has been the leading cause of death since 2011.
