Survey aims to improve dementia care

Alzheimer’s Research UK has launched a ‘Shaping Future Treatments’ survey to inform the development of more person-centred treatments for dementia. The online survey asks for people’s views on the aspects of daily life that are most important to them, and which they’d most like to protect if they were to develop a disease that causes dementia.

According to Alzheimer’s Research UK, there are over 240 potential treatments for dementia in clinical trials, but there is currently little data available on what the general public would want to see from such a treatment.

Currently new treatments are assessed on their ability to alter markers of disease, improve performance on memory and thinking tests and impact a person’s day-to-day life.

The results of the survey will be used to help inform regulators and healthcare decision makers who will be tasked with assessing the next dementia treatments. They will also be shared with researchers who are working to develop future treatment approaches.
