Dementia prevention across the life-course

Speaker: 
Session Date: 
Saturday, March 25, 2023 - 11:05

Brain development begins before birth and there are critical times in life where simple things can make a big difference to dementia risk and primary care is ideally suited to proactive care. While it is very difficult to find randomised controlled trial evidence – the Lancet Commission on dementia offers some light along the blurry margins of prevention of dementia.  

In this session, I will talk about dementia prevention and highlight along the lifecourse the potential for primary care to make a difference.
