  • Low or no evidence for dementia risk reduction measures, says WHO

    Low or no evidence for dementia risk reduction measures, says WHO

    23.05.19 The World Health Organisation (WHO) has produced guidelines on reducing the risk of dementia including an assessment of the quality of evidence for many well-known recommendations. While strongly recommending physical activity and tobacco cessation as risk reduction measures, for example, it describes the quality of evidence for the former as “moderate” and for the latter “low”. It conditionally recommends cognitive training while describing the quality of evidence as “very low to low” and adds that “there is insufficient evidence for social activity and reduction of risk of cognitive decline/dementia”. In a statement on the WHO report, Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) said it identified “several risk factors that require further research to strengthen the evidence base.” HERE for “Risk Reduction of Cognitive Decline and Dementia: WHO Guidelines”

  • Still no sign of end to social care crisis as PM agrees departure plan

    Still no sign of end to social care crisis as PM agrees departure plan

    22.05.19 Hopes receded further this week that the social care Green Paper would be published imminently as PM Theresa May refused to give any indication of a release date. Asked in the House of Commons for a “definitive and unalterable date” May would only reply that it would be published “at the earliest opportunity”. It came shortly before she was forced by her party to set out a timetable for her departure during the summer, apparently pushing social care even further down the priority list. In the House of Lords last week, health minister Baroness Blackwood insisted that the Green Paper remained a priority for the government: “Despite the delay in publication, the government are committed to improving adult social care,” she said. Replying for Labour, Baroness Wheeler reminded the Lords that the Green Paper was first promised in 2017, when the government said “we cannot wait any longer – we need to get on with this” and pledged to publish it by the end of that year.
