OUR EDUCATION AND RESEARCH CONFERENCE
What We Learned
On Wednesday, May 1 st , we held our Annual Education and Research Conference for Healthcare Professionals, presenting the latest advances in dementia research and care. Here are some key messages from our featured speakers regarding clinical trials, memory and ethics. 
 
Tiffany Chow , M.D., Medical Strategy Director in Neurology, IQVIA, speaking on "How to Read Between the Lines of the Latest Breakthrough,"
  • For clinical trials to be successful, in finding a prevention or cure for Alzheimer's, it is critically important for more people to get involved.
  • When learning about a new research "breakthrough," ask your doctor to help you interpret the applicability of the new findings to you specifically.
  • Keep in mind that a positive pivotal trial may still mean YEARS before availability at your local pharmacy

Andrew Budsen , M.D., Chief, Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology and Associate Chief of Staff for Education, Veterans Affairs (VA) Boston Healthcare System speaking on "Understanding Memory," recommends 7 Steps to Managing Your Memory:
  • Learn what is normal memory
  • Determine if your memory is normal
  • Understand your memory loss
  • Treat your memory loss
  • Modify your lifestyle
  • Strengthen your memory
  • Plan for your future

Stephen Post , Ph.D., Director, Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care and Bioethics, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, speaking "On the Dignity of Deeply Forgetful People,"
  • Dementia presents major ethical issues in today’s world. It’s important to remember that “deeply forgetful” people are people – therefore they should be valued and treated with dignity when making decisions about treatment and care no matter what stage of dementia they are experiencing.
