Meeting the research-practice challenge

The upcoming National Dementia Research Forum will look at how emerging research can be translated into both health policy and clinical practice, and AAA has free passes to give away.

 

How do we ensure that emerging research makes its way into health policy and clinical practice at the coalface? That’s the challenging question that delegates at the upcoming National Dementia Research Forum will tackle.

The one-day event, which is open to consumers, carers, providers and researchers in the ageing and dementia space, is focused on the theme of knowledge translation.

As well as showcasing the latest emerging research in dementia, the event will outline ongoing efforts to help health policy makers use best evidence, as well as new resources for consumers.

Delegates will also hear about the Dementia Training Study Centres’ national framework for educating health professionals, as well as ongoing work in public health around dementia risk profiling for improving dementia awareness and prevention.

READER GIVEAWAY: The organisers of the event are offering five free passes – under a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ deal. Interested readers should email DCRCForum2014@unsw.edu.au and mention Australian Ageing Agenda.

The eighth National Dementia Research Forum takes place in The Wesley Conference Centre, Sydney on Friday 19 September 2014. Follow AAA online for further coverage of the conference.
