You are here: Home / News and events / Our webinars / Changing perceptions of diagnosis
Our webinar at 12.30-1.30pm on Wednesday 8th February 2023 will be led by Dr Susan Mitchell, Head of Policy at Alzheimer’s Research UK, alongside a panel of experts.
We will consider how the preferences of people living with dementia, a shifting political landscape and advances in research and drug discovery can help the dementia diagnosis pathway evolve.
Recent research will be presented which suggests a disconnect between what people at risk of developing or living with dementia want, and what their healthcare professionals think they want.
The panel will discuss how we can reconcile patient preferences and clinical perceptions and close the gap.
