Event description

Description

Professor Martin Knapp and Adelina Comas-Herrera will present their work on STRIDE Project (Strengthening responses to dementia in developing countries), led by the Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU) at LSE. Details to follow.


Martin Knapp is Professor of Social Policy and Director of the Personal Social Services Research Unit at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). He has also been Director of the NIHR School for Social Care Research since 2009. His current research emphases are primarily dementia, child and adult mental health, autism and long-term social care; much of his work has an economic focus, and in all of it he seeks to tease out the policy implications. He has published almost 600 peer-review journal papers and 15 books. His work has had numerous impacts on policy and practice in these areas.


Adelina Comas-Herrera is an Assistant Professorial Research Fellow at the Personal Social Services Research Unit at the London School of Economics. She is the academic project manager of the “Modelling Dementia” (MODEM) research project which aims to estimate the impact, in terms of costs and quality of life, of making interventions that are known to work for people with dementia and their carers more widely available by 2040. She has previously worked on making projections of future long-term care expenditure for the UK and other countries, and also on evaluating the potential role of private insurance and private/public partnerships in long-term care financing.
