Dementia 2020 Conference
‘The Challenge on Dementia 2020 contains over 50 commitments that together aspire to make England the best country in the world for dementia care and support, for people with dementia to live; and to conduct dementia research. The 50 commitments are split across four themes: risk reduction, health and care, awareness and social action, and research.
The Implementation Plan published on 6th March 2016 sets out how these commitments will be met.
This conference will review and assess the actions included in the Dementia 2020 Implementation plan, providing the necessary transparency to ensure that its actions – and later updates – make a real and lasting difference to people with dementia, their families and their carers.
Govconnect recognise the importance of engaging with service users; dedicated breakout sessions during the conference coordinated by Dementia UK, and the DEEP and Tide networks will allow attendees from NHS, Local Government and community care settings to engage with people with dementia and carers.’- text from Govconnect’s website.
