Sleep disturbances are often experienced by people living with dementia and can negatively impact their quality of life. This symposium aims to bring together experts from diverse backgrounds (people with lived experience, clinicians and researchers) to present their perspectives, including the latest research and clinical guidelines.
An expert panel discussion with audience Q&A will then take place to discuss where we need to focus research, clinical practice and policy development moving forward. Practical strategies that carers can use to help people living with dementia will also be discussed.
