[Registration Open] (Postponed from March 13) The 84th HGPI Seminar– Recent Trends in Clinical Research and Development for Dementia (April 24, 2020)
[Notice] HGPI Seminars to Begin in FY2020
Up until now, HGPI has held Breakfast Meetings and Evening Seminars once per month for anyone among the general public with an interest in healthcare policy.
Today, we would like to notify you that we are updating our general public seminars. From April 2020, they will be called HGPI Seminars.
To be accessible to a wider audience, particularly those who found it difficult to attend early morning seminars, HGPI Seminars will be free to attend for all participants and will be held at various times of day, such as morning, afternoon, and evening. Please note that our application system for participants will continue to prioritize individual supporting members. We look forward to your continued support of HGPI.
Together with multi-stakeholders in Japan and abroad, Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) has engaged in various activities in the field of dementia including survey research and policy proposals. Through initiatives such as the Research Project on the Construction and Use of a Model for an International Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Dementia Research conducted with the World Dementia Council (WDC) – which includes HGPI Chairman Dr. Kiyoshi Kurokawa as a member – discussions based on the perspectives of people with dementia and their families have been held repeatedly to produce proposals on topics ranging from major frameworks to specific policy proposals to find the ideal structure of society in an era when many people live with dementia.
Recently, the concept of a dementia-friendly society has permeated the public consciousness and many regions have announced that they now aim for its creation. Dementia policy also requires perspectives from clinical research and development based on medical science. Identifying the various disease mechanisms that result in dementia is an urgent issue and research on dementia prevention was one of the goals mentioned in the Framework for Promoting Dementia Care presented in 2019.
On that note, we are pleased to announce that the guest of our next HGPI Meeting guest will be Dr. Yoshiki Niimi. Dr. Niimi is active in clinical research as an Assistant Professor at Fujita Health University’s Department of Neurology & Neuroscience. From his time as a former expert consultant on dementia measures at the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare’s Health and Welfare Bureau for the Elderly Office for Dementia Policy, Dr. Niimi has vast experience at the frontline of policymaking.
Dr. Niimi was not only a member of the research team of the aforementioned Research Project on the Construction and Use of a Model for an International Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Dementia Research, he has provided advice to HGPI’s Dementia Policy Project several times. He has a wide network both in Japan and abroad and is a particularly well-informed individual.
Together with everyone in the audience, we would like to deepen our understanding on recent trends in clinical research and development for dementia, how dementia policy is positioned in clinical research and development, and current goals in that field.
Dr. Yoshiki Niimi
