National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and Their Caregivers:
Report to the National Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Research, Care, and Services (April 27, 2018)
This is the final report associated with the Research Summit on Dementia Care and was authored by the Summit co-chairs, Laura Gitlin and Katie Maslow and the federal lead for the Summit, Rohini Khillan.
This final Summit report includes the results and recommendations of the National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and Their Caregivers (also called the Research Summit on Dementia Care) held on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus on October 16-17, 2017. The Summit complements the National Institute on Aging's (NIA) Alzheimer's Disease Research Summits and the National Institute for Neurological Disease and Stroke (NINDS) Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias Summits, and follows the same general structure. These conferences are coordinated planning efforts that respond to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease, first released in 2012 and now updated annually. Following the example of the earlier NIA and NINDS Summits, this Summit was intended to set national research recommendations that reflect critical scientific priorities for research on care and services for persons with dementia and their families. The Steering Committee and organizers of this Summit solicited input from nationally and internationally recognized experts and researchers, and other public and private sector stakeholders, to develop prioritized recommendations. The recommendations included in this report will help guide investments by a number of public and private stakeholders in the field of care, services, and supports, and will provide the structure for future summits.
