|CALL#1 FOR WHITE PAPERS |
Phase I of Decadal Survey on Reducing the Burden of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD)
The National Academies is launching the first phase of a decadal survey focused on reducing the burden of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Alzheimer’s Disease Related Dementias (ADRD). A key aspect of the decadal survey process involves outreach to the scientific and stakeholder communities for input.
If you, and/or your organization, would like to provide direct input into the initial work of the committee, please consider submitting a white paper. We are especially seeking input from (1) researchers working in the social and behavioral sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology, demography, economics, anthropology, cognition, and behavioral neuroscience), and (2) stakeholder communities involved in AD and ADRD and/or aging as a field writ large.
For this call, white papers should be no more than 5 pages (full submission guidelines provided below) and address one or more of the following issues:
-- Potential new theories and methodologies that might address the role of social and behavioral pathways (e.g. exercise, education, social interactions) in the
development and management of AD and ADRD.
-- The role of support systems (e.g., nursing homes, faith communities, personal caregivers,) and how to analyze effectiveness and determine best practices.
-- Social and behavioral science research not typically associated with AD and ADRD that may have implications for prevention and care.
White papers for this Phase I, first round are due by June 30, 2019. Papers will be posted on the Decadal Survey website for the committee and public to view. There will be other calls for white papers on additional topics in the future.
