The DID-SIG is an independent group that exists, based at UCL but not solely for UCL-affiliated staff, to discuss and promote the clinical information and research relevant to people who have intellectual disabilities and dementia.
Our special interest group is composed of clinicians (including clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists and nurses) from across the UK and beyond who have a special interest in dementia in people with intellectual disabilities. The group is chaired by Dr Andre Strydom, Reader in Intellectual Disabilities and Consultant Psychiatrist.
We meet every quarter, in London, to discuss relevant and recent research, clinical cases and policy.
If you are interested in coming to a meeting or joining the group, please get in touch with Dr Richard Hillier, Consultant Psychiatrist and the group's Secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org.
On our page, you will find details about forthcoming and past meetings and some publications of interest.
