Policy: a vital component of improving dementia prevention and treatment

The number of dementia cases, and subsequently the cost of dementia care, is predicted to grow in the coming years. We thus need to find better ways to prevent and treat dementia, including changes in policy to implement new scientific findings. In this interview, Martin Knapp from the London School of Economics, London, UK, discusses developing a policy platform for better dementia care earlier in the disease pathway. Prof. Knapp highlights the importance of considering economic factors in the field of dementia, emphasizing what policy can do to improve dementia care. This video was recorded at the Alzheimer’s Research UK Policy Conference 2018, held in London, UK.
