How can we reduce the dementia burden? A mathematical modelling study

Project summary

Dementia knowledge has increased, however, it is still unknown how the disease burden can best be reduced. An innovative microsimulation model will be developed, that synthesises all evidence. It will lead to better understanding of disease development and intervention influences, and will identify interventions that efficiently reduce the dementia burden.


This project will advance crucial knowledge to identify effective interventions on population trends in dementia incidence and mortality. The anticipated knowledge will result in novel intervention approaches, and improvement of existing dementia care and prevention strategies.
