On 15 and 23 September, Alzheimer Europe (AE) and Karolinska Institute (KI) co-hosted a consultation with the members of the EU-FINGERS and LETHE Advisory Boards respectively. The topic of the meeting was to provide feedback to the CAIDE (Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia) Risk Score. The CAIDE Risk Score is a tool which estimates the risk of a middle-aged person to develop dementia at older age. This risk score is based on non-modifiable factors (age, sex, education) and modifiable factors, which can be improved (high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, physical inactivity, obesity). During the meeting, members discussed the idea of a digital version of the CAIDE risk score, the different possibilities on how it could be used, including the benefits and challenges.
The discussions were co-facilitated by Ana Diaz (AE), Francesca Mangialasche (KI) and Anna Rosenberg (THL). Both meetings were very interactive and lively and the feedback received was very valuable for the project.
