Best Practice Guidance for Technology in Dementia - updated recommendations by the INDUCT network presented at #30AEC

Thursday 22 October 2020

At the 30th Alzheimer Europe Conference, an updated version of the Best Practice Guidance on Human Interaction with Technology in Dementia was presented by Prof. Rose-Marie Dröes. This Best Practice Guidance includes an extensive set of recommendations on the development, usage and implementation of technology for people with dementia, resulting from the research which fifteen early stage researchers within the EU-Marie Sklodowska Curie funded INDUCT Innovative Training Network (2016-2019) from seven universities across Europe conducted in various areas of technology in dementia: Everyday life: meaningful activities: and health care.

The web-based version of this Best Practice Guidance was officially launched at the 29th Alzheimer Europe conference in the Hague ( The updated Guidance now contains 56 recommendations which are very useful for a variety of target groups, such as users, designers/developers, care professionals and providers, researchers, politicians and the media. Each target group can easily find specific recommendations relevant to them by means of the “theme” and the “target group”-oriented search engines.

In the coming years, recommendations resulting from the recently-started new Marie Sklodowska Curie DISTINCT-ITN (2019-2023), which focuses on technology to promote Social health in people living with dementia, will also be included in the Best Practice Guidance.
