Overview for UCL

Getting to the nub of the issue: Involving people who are living with dementia

Anna completed her undergraduate speech and language therapy degree at UCL, in 2002, before embarking on a career working with adults who have had strokes, brain injuries, or have progressive neurological conditions, such as dementia. She became particularly passionate about working with people with language-led dementia (also called primary progressive aphasia) when working in Melbourne, Australia. She has written a book on assessment and management of language and cognition in progressive communication disorders. In this blog post, she outlines how patient and public involvement has strengthened her PhD project.
