A team of us at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), led by my colleague Sara Evans-Lacko, have been commissioned by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) to carry out the world’s largest survey on people’s attitudes around dementia. Results of the survey will form the basis for the next World Alzheimer Report, to be released during World Alzheimer Month in September 2019.
Stigma remains the single largest and most pervasive barrier facing the dementia community – but with your help, this survey can be a first step in tackling it.
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and it is already available in 19 languages. We will be adding more languages over the next two weeks (please let us know if you’d like to translate it to other languages we have not done so far). The questions are predominantly multiple choice and we have targeted four key sociodemographic groups.
We want to hear from:
- The general public
- Health and care professionals
- People living with dementia
- Carers of people living with dementia
The survey will be available until the 14 June 2019 at www.alz.co.uk/research/world-report-2019
Please sign up to ADI’s mailing list and visit www.alz.co.uk/research/world-report-2019 if you are interested in participating and share as widely as possible, both within your organisations and broader networks.
The survey will only take 10 minutes of your time but completing it will benefit people living with dementia and their families around the world.
Thank you for your support!
