A new programme of six workshops via the Global Brain Health Platform have been planned from now until July 2023.

The next Clinical Exchange workshop for 2023 will run on 5 May, 2pm (GMT):

Promoting intersectoral action for brain health

The World Health Organization has outlined the need for intersectoral action to improve brain health around the world - but how do we achieve this? Our chair, speaker and panel will discuss using intersectoral approaches in dementia, covering both the healthcare setting and community. We will describe practical approaches that can be taken with limited resource.
