Hosted by the Journal of Dementia Care, the 12th UK Dementia Congress is to be held at Doncaster Racecourse on 7-9 November 2017. The UK Dementia Congress is the largest annual multi-disciplinary dementia-focused event and exhibition in the UK.

The Congress offers great choice and variety with at least 7 sessions running simultaneously. In a rich mix of presentations, symposia and workshops the Congress will cover all areas of care and support for people with dementia and carers in all settings. Early bird sessions, satellite special interest groups, short presentations and posters, and plenty of opportunities to network with like-minded colleagues complete the unique Congress experience. This year we are also including special interest streams for the following areas: support for people with learning disabilities and dementia; home care for people with dementia; end of life care for people with dementia; dementia care in acute hospital settings; royal college of psychiatrists.

Congress partners: The School of Dementia Studies at the University of Bradford, the Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Action Alliance, Hospice UK, MacIntyre, the Royal College of Psychiatrists, United Kingdom Homecare Association Ltd.
