BREXIT – INTERDEM will continue and intensify European collaboration that will of course include the UK


I, Esme Moniz-Cook am of course disappointed that the British public voted narrowly to leave the EU. As founder chair and now co-chair of INTERDEM   I – and Myrra Vernooij Dassen our  Chair, wish to  reassure  our scientific community that the need for collaboration across Europe will now be even more urgent if we are to continue to realise the impressive gains we have  made in improving the quality of research and practice in dementia care in the past 15 years.  INTERDEM will continue and intensify  European collaboration that will of course include the UK, since we have demonstrated that the whole is greater than the sum of the  parts as a backbone for scientific progress in dementia care.
