Tomorrow, 21 September, it is World Alzheimer’s Day, to raise awareness and educate about Alzheimer’s and Dementia!
On this day, The World Alzheimer Report 2021 about the crucial and timely subject of diagnosis will be launched. Diagnosis is still a major challenge globally, with estimates that 90% of cases still go undiagnosed and with long wait times. But there seems to be an evolution in diagnostics and potential treatment breakthroughs; meaning this is the perfect time to shine a light on the ‘Journey through the diagnosis of dementia’.
There will be a launch webinar for the report with experts to discuss key findings and a Q&A session. The session will cover the changing face of diagnosis; the perspective of people living with dementia and carers; developments in cognitive assessment; the role of scanners, CSF and bio-markers, shining a light on confirmatory diagnosis in light of potential treatments; best practice and challenges in low- and middle- income countries; disclosure and the ongoing clinician role, and a look to the future.
