UEA Dementia Forum: ‘Can sport lead to dementia?’

Speaker: Dr Michael J. Grey, Reader in Rehabilitation Neuroscience, School of Health Sciences, UEA

Recent high-profile incidences of neurodegeneration and dementia in former professional sportsmen have caused a media frenzy in the United States and concern in the British press. Whilst it has highlighted the need for greater awareness of the issue, the media coverage has led to a relatively poor understanding of the issue.  Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a debilitating neurodegenerative disease that has been increasingly reported in athletes and military veterans in combat settings. It has been suggested that CTE is caused by repetitive mild traumatic brain injuries that have produced neuropathology rather than structural damage that can be seen via neuroimaging. In this talk I will discuss the science of CTE and highlight some of the preventative strategies that can be adopted.

Michael J. Grey is a neuroscientist with interests in neuroplasticity and neurorehabilitation following acquired brain injury. He leads the Concussion Action Programme with University of East Anglia’s Health and Social Care Partners. He is Co-PI for the Repetitive COncussion in Sport (RECOS) project in Birmingham where he contributes to the development of physiological tests to aid the return to play decision following concussion in sport.

Please note: the lecture theatre is on the third floor of the Julian Study Centre, if in the event of an emergency you would need assistance please contact us by reply to arrange a Personalised Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).

Please also be aware that photography and videography may be used to film the event - if you have any questions or would not like to be filmed please reply to let us know.

The bi-monthly series of free dementia events at UEA create an exchange of knowledge between researchers, clinicians, the general public, people with dementia and their carers.  Anyone with an interest in dementia research is welcome.

Researchers from UEA will present their cutting-edge research studies and findings – with a different UEA dementia researcher leading each event.  There will also be an opportunity for people to find out how to take part in any upcoming studies.  At the end of each meeting there will be a short 15 minute Q&A and there will be tea and coffee available on arrival.

The events are open to all and free to attend. Parking is free of charge for this event in the ‘Main Visitors Car Park’ only (see map) and parking tokens will be validated at the registration desk on arrival. Please note that other car parks on campus will incur standard UEA parking charges.

Quality matters: using data to improve quality

If you work in a role that involves improving quality in an adult social care organisation, this event will introduce you to the Quality Matters initiative and explore how you can use data to improve quality.

Please note, these events are aimed at organisations that are commissioned by more than one local authority.

The event will be particularly useful if you work in a role that involves providing, collecting, analysing or sharing data about your organisation.

It’ll share practical examples and good practice from across England about how others have used data to improve the monitoring of quality, and how this has helped them to make decisions that can have a positive impact on users of services.

We’ll also discuss the benefits and practicalities of using data to improve quality in your organisation. For example, we’ll share ways to address some common issues, such as duplicating data collection and returns, and share how others have addressed these issues.

The event will give you practical ideas about how you could do similar work in your organisation.

Places are limited, so make sure that you book early!

Dementia Forum - What factors affect the quality of life of family carers of people with dementia?

Family members supporting a person with dementia often experience elevated levels of depression and anxiety as well as lower levels of quality of life (QoL). However, the support provided to family carers within medical and social care services can be limited depending on the available resources. Therefore, it is important to identify key modifiable factors that predict QoL among family carers in order to develop the targeted intervention which can have the greatest impact on their QoL with the limited resources available. Milena will present preliminary results of her PhD which aims to investigate various potential factors affecting QoL among family carers and discuss how the findings may inform future support and development initiatives.

Milena Contreras graduated as a psychologist in 2015 in Argentina and moved to Spain in 2016 to undertake a Masters in Gerontology. She has extensive experience working with people with dementia living in care homes in Spain and London. Currently, Milena is doing her PhD funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE), Norfolk and Suffolk Primary and Community Care Research Office and Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of East Anglia.

Please note: the lecture theatre is on the third floor of the Julian Study Centre, if in the event of an emergency you would need assistance please contact us by reply to arrange a Personalised Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).

Please also be aware that photography and videography may be used to film the event - if you have any questions or would not like to be filmed please reply to let us know.
