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 2015. Consisting of oral sessions and poster presentations for both researchers and dementia care practitioners, this track is the perfect place to discover how practice and research come together to help solve the current topics facing Alzheimer’s and dementia patients.

The sessions on July 20th and 21st (Monday and Tuesday) will feature the latest research and updates regarding epidemiology, health economics, policy, psychosocial factors related to dementia, and innovative dementia care practices.
