Dementias 2020 is a two-day, CPD certified conference that brings together old age psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, care of the elderly specialists, nurse specialists and GPs to discuss the current issues and practical management in this area.

Our dementias series has become an essential event in the calendar and whether you have been before, perhaps several times, or whether you will be a new attendee, we are confident that this 22nd National Conference will be informative,
interactive and enjoyable.

You will hear sessions on imaging and CSF biomarkers as we look to future developments in the field, as well as an examination of current best practice including discussions on ethical issues in dementias and dementia in the community.
