Who were the biggest winners and losers of the G8 dementia summit? My survey of 96 persons in the UK without dementia.

  1. 1. Who were the biggest winners and losers of the G8 dementia summit? My survey of 96 persons in the UK without dementia.
  2. 2. PEOPLE Perception and identity of dementia Alzheimer’s Europe Glasgow 2014
  3. 3. • Background • Aim • Methods • Results • Discussion • Conclusion
  4. 4. Background • The G8 summit on dementia was much promoted ‘to put dementia on top of the world agenda’.
  5. 5. Methods • an online survey using “SurveyMonkey” • recruited off my Twitter accounts @legalaware and @dementia_2014, and there were 96 respondents. • responses to individual items varied from 63 to 96. Exclusions • Persons with dementia were directed to a different link (of the same survey.)
  6. 6. Results Media coverage • Overall, most people had not caught any of the news coverage on the TV (56%) or radio (55%). • But most had caught the coverage on the internet, for example Facebook or Twitter (66%) • Most people did not think the summit was a “game changer” (53% compared to 16%; with the rest saying ‘don’t know’) • The vast majority thought the subject matter was significant (82%) (n = 90).
  7. 7. In terms of language, the respondents were consistent in not viewing the response against dementia • as a “fight” (61%), • a “war” (84%) • a “battle” (72%) • “epidemic” (70%) • “turning the tide (56%) [n ranging from 83 to 86]
  8. 8. • 91% of people thought it was appropriate to talk of ‘living with dementia’ in the early stage (n = 85) • 82% of people did not think it was more appropriate to talk of people ‘suffering from dementia’ at this early stage (n = 86)
  9. 9. WHO BENEFITED?
  10. 10. Conclusions • it would be interesting to know of any in- house reports from other organisations e.g. patient representative groups, Big Pharma, carers and the medical profession • results taken cumulatively demonstrate a very unhealthy picture of the public’s perception in the dementia agenda in England, who calls the shots, and who benefited from #G8dementia • responses indicate that the #G8dementia summit was a very poor representation of ‘living well with dementia’
