DNNI

The Dementia Neurodegeneration Network of Ireland (DNNI) is dedicated to the enhancement of the understanding of the causes and mechanisms of dementia and neurodegeneration, the effectiveness of different models of care and the policy changes required to improve the quality of life for persons with dementia and neurodegenerative conditions and their caregivers.

DNNI links leading researchers across several disciplines in the areas of dementia and ND, it is novel in its multi-disciplinary focus and strategic in its objective to enhance research co-operation and co-ordination across the island of Ireland.  By facilitating collaborative consensus and policy based projects and supporting knowledge exchange and public patient events DNNI seeks to improve our understanding of the causes and mechanisms of dementia and neurodegeneration, the effectiveness of different models of care and the policy changes required to improve the quality of life for persons with dementia and neurodegenerative conditions and their caregivers.

ASI works closely with the DNNI’s Scientific Coordinator to support collaborative research, consensus and knowledge exchange. Recently ASI co-hosted a Dementia Research Forum with the DNNI, and is continuing a collaborative research consensus process.
