A network of dementia researchers, clinicians and carers collaboratively working towards reducing the burden of dementia within NSW.
The Sydney Dementia Network, launched in 2018, seeks to unite dementia researchers, clinicians, carers and patients to accelerate the focus on dementia research within NSW. Led by Professors Glenda Halliday, Sharon Naismith, Clement Loy and Dr Fiona Kumfor, the Network has progressed to ensure improved outcomes for patients while providing opportunities and resources from researchers and clinicians across NSW in prevention, treatment and care of dementia.
Our work includes collaborations with key researchers, clinicians, health organisations and government bodies to discuss current research efforts, the future of dementia in NSW and workshop how to improve outcomes. Below are some of our collaborations, events and initiatives from the Network so far.
The SDN will again host an EMCR Grant workshop whereby participating EMCR’s can pitch their Investigator Grant application for the upcoming submission round to a panel of senior researchers within the Network for feedback. We urge all submitting to take advantage of this opportunity to receive constructive assistance in optimising your application for success. Details of this session are below:
