About this event

  • Date and time Mon 5 Dec 2022 from 9:00am to 12:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Medicine and Me

The rate of Alzheimer's disease in the UK is estimated at 1 in every 6 people above the age of 80, with its impact spreading even further amongst friends and family of the afflicted. 

During this event, we will showcase a diverse range of experiences from Alzheimer's Society research volunteers and dementia researchers to promote patient/public involvement and participation in dementia research. 

Attendees will learn the difference between involvement and participation in terms of clinical research and appreciate the importance of newly diagnosed patients being offered access to studies. 

Only through continued research into Alzheimer's will we be able to develop new treatment options for patients. During this event, we will share excellent examples of research opportunities so attendees can access/refer people themselves. 

Attendees will be able to: 

  • Understand the role of dementia research and the difference between participation and involvement 
  • Access research studies and refer others 
  • Appreciate the benefit of involvement and participation in research for people with dementia, their loved ones and healthcare 


We would like to thank our anonymous donor for their generous support enabling this platform for patient focused charities and free access to the Medicine and Me series.
