At the virtual conference of Alzheimer Europe, there were two dedicated sessions on diversity. Among other talks, our Dutch colleagues from Pharos presented their findings showing the importance of the cooperation between formal and informal carers of diverse elderly with dementia in care homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our colleagues from Germany presented their findings on national dementia plans across Europe and how these specifically tailor to diverse elders. Our Belgian colleagues showcased their work regarding care for Moroccan patients and our Finnish colleagues talked about a new Interpreter training program. I was very happy to present some of our findings from our Delphi expert study into cross-cultural neuropsychological assessment, that has recently been published in Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology – the full text can be read here.
