GPSAC Research Project Launch Event – 9th April

The General Practice Saccade Assessment Cohort research project (GPSAC) will examine whether a quick, portable and easy to use test of eye movements (saccades) could be used as an all-in-one neurological health check for patients in primary care, capable of detecting early signs of dementia and other brain disorders.  In order to develop the project further it would be useful to get input from local GPs, practice nurses and members of the public on the project idea, design and practical issues facing patients and professionals.

With this aim a launch workshop event has been scheduled for spring 2013 which will include a practical demonstration of the saccadometer device, project presentation, lunch and focus group discussions. Travel and other expenses for attendees will be reimbursed.
