Edinburgh Dementia Prevention Summer School 2022
Date: 26/09/2022 to 29/09/2022 Venue: St Leonard's Hall, Pollock Halls of Residence, Holyrood Park Road, Edinburgh
The brain health summer school is a 4-day interactive course designed principally for trainee and qualified clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals working in (or with an aim to work in) brain health and Alzheimer’s disease services. Post-graduate students with an interest in pursuing research in brain health and Alzheimer’s disease will also be welcome, as are those interested in increasing their general knowledge of research in this area (for example public health workers). Admission will be limited to 30 participants to maximise learning and networking opportunities.
An important aim of the course is to introduce students to approaches outside their current discipline with a view to developing multi-disciplinary practice and research. The course will provide an overview of brain health clinical services and an exploration of the evidence base underpinning these. There will be a blend of lectures and interactive activities throughout the summer school to enhance learning.
