Dementia Care Research and Practice Track
We will be offering the two-day Dementia Care Research and Practice Track (DCRP) again this year at AAIC 2016. Oral and poster presentations for both researchers and dementia care practitioners will be selected by experts in both fields. This track is the perfect place to discover how practice and research come together to help solve the current, complex issues facing people with Alzheimer’s and related disorders and their families and caregivers.
The sessions on July 25 and 26 (Monday and Tuesday) will feature the latest research and updates regarding epidemiology, health economics, policy and psychosocial factors related to dementia, and innovative dementia care practices.
You can register for the Dementia Care Research and Practice Track as part of the full conference experience at AAIC, or as registrant for the two-day track only.
