TEDx 2015: 815,827 - Dementia patients in the UK - and counting!

Date
21/03/2015
Location:
Great Hall - Aston Webb Building
Description
Dementia research has reached an impasse. Christmas is 2014 was marked by yet another failed Alzheimer drug. The pharmaceutical industry is losing interest in dementia because of the expensive failures. The number of patients is rising. As social care spending is gradually reduced the healthcare system will buckle under the pressure. We need a solution fast. We need funding for novel accelerated research on dementia. The big UK government pledge to answer "the dementia challenge" is still less than £100 per patient. It is time for the public to become actively engaged and help us to make a difference in dementia research.
