CADR Conference 2018; Connect 'for' Ageing & Dementia Research: Making and Sustaining Connections

Thu 18th Oct 2018

We intend to showcase how CADR develops and uses connections to ensure our research activities are meaningful and useful for older people in Wales and beyond. We do this by bringing together different groups of stakeholders who may not otherwise have had opportunities to work together so that they can share their ideas, priorities and concerns and help identify and become involved in key research activities. This means we are instrumental in helping to connect research with policy and practice and in ensuring that our research encompasses individuals, through to communities and out to the broader context of the UK and international collaborations.
