Aims of the Group

Aim 1: Evaluate - What is the current evidence available on dementia risk indicators?

Aim 2: Guide - How should we provide effective education? When should we not share risk information because there is not strong evidence that it is valid?

Aim 3: Consult -What are the ethical and legal risks? How can we inform and protect people and potentially balance risks and benefits?
