9th Canadian Conference on Dementia

presented by University Health Network

Welcome to the 9th Canadian Conference on Dementia!

The Canadian Conference on Dementia is a biennial national conference dedicated to advance knowledge on dementia in scientific research and clinical care.

Over 2 and half days you will engage with eminent researchers and renowned scholars on cutting edge topics in dementia.

The 9th CCD is thrilled to offer a new and exciting program involving interactive discussions, workshops, plenary sessions and a lively debate.

We open the 9th CCD with reflections of a caregiver on dementia and music. David Hetherington was for many years the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s Assistant Principal Cellist. While continuing to teach at the Glenn Gould School at the Royal Conservatory, coach the cello section of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada and perform regularly with his own Amici Chamber Ensemble and other musical organizations, David is also a full-time caregiver for his wife, Lee, who suffers from Alzheimer disease. David will share his own personal reflections on music and dementia followed by a short cello recital.

Our conference this year focuses on the theme of prevention. Dr. Dillip Jeste, University of California San Diego Center for Healthy Aging, will present on secrets of successful cognitive and emotional aging. Dr. Keri-Leigh Cassidy, Dalhousie, will present on The Fountain of Health, a program that translates current science of healthy aging, wellbeing and resilience, and offers practical tools to improve health outcomes over the lifespan. Dr. Charles DeCarli, University of California in Davis, California, will present on why vascular factors are important in dementia.

Does prevention work? Dr. Kenneth Langa, University of Chicago, will discuss whether the risks for Alzheimer's and dementia are on the decline.

You won’t want to miss out on this year’s debate on the controversial topic of medical assistance in dying for patients with dementia. Listen and engage with our two outstanding debaters, Shenaaz Gokool from Dying with Dignity and James Downar, the University of Toronto.

These are just some of the highlights from what promises to be the best Canadian Conference on Dementia, ever!!

We are excited to partner for the first time with the Canadian Academy of Geriatric Psychiatry annual conference that will take place immediately following the 9th CCD. In appreciation of this partnership the CCD and the CAGP will be co-sponsoring two workshops. Should you choose to attend both of these outstanding conferences, you will be able to register at discounted rate.

Mix and mingle, form new relationships and strengthen existing ones over coffee, lunch, cocktails and dinner!

Be part of the action by submitting an abstract to the 9th CCD Scientific Committee and share your research with your colleagues. Abstracts will be considered for both oral and poster presentations. A $500.00 prize will be awarded to the author of the best abstract!

This conference is sure to provide a unique convergence of networking, learning and fun into a single platform.

If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] or call 416 597-3422 ext. 3448 to reach the registration department.

We look forward to seeing you on November 2nd!

Ron Keren, 9th CCD Chair
