Margaret and Barry share their reflections on the importance of early detection of Alzheimer's disease.
Scotland is one of six countries selected as a flagship site for the Davos Alzheimer's Collaborative (DAC) Healthcare System Preparedness Project for the Early Detection of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The project funds new approaches that measurably increase rates of cognitive screening, early detection, and accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The Scotland flagship site incorporates a digital cognitive assessment (Linus Health’s Core Cognitive Evaluation) and an innovative blood-based biomarker (C2N’s PrecivityAD™) to evaluate advanced diagnostics in the patient journey.
Scotland works closely with the other flagship sites to share best practices and develop models for broader healthcare systems that can be scaled globally, through DAC Learning Labs, a network of governments, public health and healthcare system leaders.
