WELCOME FOR THE 2ND PERIOD OF INDEED

 
Alexander KURZ │Coordinator INDEED Project

Lea PFÄFFEL │ Project Manager INDEED Project

Dear Readers,

The INDEED Project aims at improving quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers. To achieve this aim, INDEED develops an educational intervention for health and social care professionals. This intervention will feature up-to-date information about dementia, networking opportunities and foster the creation of novel dementia-related services. The intervention will be made available in a blended-learning format that combines face-to-face workshops and a multimedia online platform.

During the first year of implementation, INDEED hit several milestones: In February 2019, INDEED organised three transnational focus groups where the structure of the INDEED educational programme was elaborated with representatives of the target groups. At the second project meeting in June (Bratislava), we continued our dialogue about the INDEED intervention with policy makers from the Danube region in order to align the educational programme with national strategies on dementia. Presently, the consortium has almost completed the materials for the multimedia online platform as well as the workshops.

One of the highlights of the past months is the trailer about the multimedia online platform. Please watch it here

Why do novel treatments for Alzheimer’s disease fail?

On 21 March 2019 the company Biogen announced that they stopped the clinical development of the anti-amyloid antibody Aducanumab after an interim analysis of two large ongoing trials (ENGAGE, EMERGE). The results of the analysis suggested a lack of efficacy. Worldwide, this was a big disappointment for people with dementia, carers and researchers.
