Research Consortium Person and Dementia

Research Consortium Person and Dementia

 
  • Abstract:
    The proposed consortium is designed as an interdisciplinary research network, devoted to a comprehensive assessment of the human person in dementia. It shall provide a deepened understanding of dementia and thus enable an improved individual as well as societal reaction to its challenges. Organized around the topics personhood and personal identity, patients and autonomy, research participants’ informed consent and perception and recognition of persons suffering from dementia, it will deliver a structural matrix of dementia and its individual and societal dimensions as well as specific insights into the relation between personhood and dementia.
