What do we know? Where do we go from here?
This webinar will outline the most established risk factors for dementia and cognitive decline and critically evaluate what we know about them.
This includes consideration of key clinical and lifestyle risk exposures and risk reduction strategies ranging from those targeted towards the individual (personalised risk reduction) to strategies more suited to high level public health and population level intervention.
