    Voices of dying people help others

    08.12.17 The charity Compassion in Dying has launched what it says is an innovative publication using the authentic voices of dying people to empower others to make informed decisions about their care and treatment. Over 600 dying people and their carers contributed to the development of the new booklet, called “What Now? Questions to ask after a terminal diagnosis.” Helping people to ask questions, find the information they need and make the decisions that are right for them, the booklet contains direct quotes from dying people and carers about their experiences of receiving and living with a terminal diagnosis.

    Tackle risk factors, conference told

    07.12.17 Claudia Cooper, from UCL’s Division of Psychiatry, told a London conference last week that by delaying the onset of dementia by five years across the population, the prevalence of the condition would be cut in half. Speaking about modifiable risk factors for dementia Cooper, who contributed to the Lancet Commission study on dementia prevention, said that lifestyle changes like diet and exercise could make an enormous difference. Increasing public awareness of dementia had brought rising numbers of people to memory clinics, she said, some of whom were diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). “If you give people a diagnosis of MCI with a heightened risk of dementia, then you’ve got to do everything you can to help and support that person to deal with the risk factors,” she added.
