2016 Dutch EU Presidency dementia conference

On 9-10 May 2016, the Dutch EU Presidency held a two-day conference dedicated to dementia entitled “Living well with(out) dementia” in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The aim of the conference was to highlight the importance of dementia as a public health priority and the need for European and global collaboration to promote research and exchange good practices. The conference was broken down into three key sections focusing on living well without dementia and the growing importance of prevention and risk reduction, on living well with dementia at home and living well with dementia in care homes.
