In December, the Living Well with Dementia team at NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Kent, Surrey and Sussex (ARC KSS) and colleagues from the Kent and Medway Partnership Trust, hosted a Dementia and Alcohol Community of Practice. The event was held to share findings from an ARC KSS PhD student's extensive, first year, evidence synthesis, and explore the implications of alcohol and dementia, and alcohol related brain damage (ARBD) for individuals and service. 170 people including: clinicians, commissioners, and representatives from the voluntary sector explored the prevalence, issues, challenges, and ways services can better meet the needs of this population.

 We have summarised key messages from this event that are available to download here.

Due to the high level of interest in this area, we are planning to hold a follow up community of practice. For more information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., ARC KSS Implementation Research Assistant.
