Event Details

Now being offered in the majority of UK memory clinics and in over 24 countries, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) is an evidence-based intervention for enhancing cognition and quality of life in people with dementia. It is a non-pharmacological intervention recommended in the UK National Clinical Practice Guideline and the World Alzheimer’s Report. International researchers are working to advance this intervention to help people with dementia and their family.
The 2nd International CST Conference brings together scholars in this area to share the current science and practice in CST. Together with a full-day pre-conference CST training, the event is tailored for researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines including social work, psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, nursing, geriatric medicine, psychiatry, and other related professionals.
