The University of Bradford is organising a special Vice-Chancellor’s Roadshow to commemorate the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, awarded to the University in 2016 in recognition of our world-leading work in improving the lives of people living with dementia.

The roadshow, entitled “Leading the Way: the UK Contribution to Global Action on Dementia”, takes place on Monday 12 June 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 at The Royal Institute, London.

Guest speakers

The Roadshow will host a panel of guest speakers including:

  • Dr Doug Brown, Director of Research and Policy, Alzheimer’s Society
  • Professor Alistair Burns, National Clinical Director for Dementia in NHS England
  • Professor Murna Downs, Head of Dementia Studies, University of Bradford
  • Dr Nori Graham, Vice-President of Alzheimer’s Disease International

Each speaker will present the ways in which their organisations are currently contributing to global action on dementia, and how they may respond to the opportunities and threats of the changing global landscape.

Following the speeches, there will be the opportunity for the audience to ask the panel questions and take part in the discussion.

Dementia as an urgent global health priority

The World Health Organisation has identified dementia as an urgent global health priority and has unanimously approved a decision to recommend the adoption of a global dementia action plan.

Advanced Healthcare solutions

As part of a leading Technology university, Bradford’s School of Dementia Studies is committed to finding Advanced Healthcare solutions to 21st-century problems.

In addition to the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, the School is undertaking landmark research with funding from the Medical Research Council, the National Institute of Health Research, the Department of Health, and the Alzheimer's Society.

In addition, the School has trained over 8,500 people worldwide to use its practice development methodology, Dementia Care Mapping™.
