date : 10/10/2020
Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) and Designing for Dementia co-hosted the first meeting of the Comparative Research Group on Local Regulations for Dementia. The group was formed to compare existing local regulations related to dementia, to examine the content of those regulations, and to consider the ideal procedures for formulating regulations related to dementia. Their goal is achieving better coexistence with dementia in the future.
An active discussion was held at the group’s first meeting based on the secretariat’s proposed topics, which were:
• Research group schedule and procedures
• Topics to examine through comparative research
• Expected FY2020 deliverables (an interim report)
As a general rule, every meeting of the research group will be held online as a countermeasure to COVID-19. The group plans to release an interim report at the end of FY2020.
