Stimulating Thinking - Iris

Iris is a series of thinkpieces launched in 2013 to address the issues which are shaping the future of dementia policy, care and practice.

Stimulating thinking

DSDC is grateful to its sponsors and partners for supporting the series.

  • Iris draws on research and evidence from across the world to stimulate thinking and action across boundaries – between practitioners, organisations, policy makers or even countries.  
  • Iris is specially commissioned to stimulate and encourage dialogue and understanding between professionals from all backgrounds and to promote public understanding and engagement.
  • Iris is an occasional series. 

The choice of Iris resonates with stimulation, communication and growth including links to the eye, the flower known for its rainbow of colours, the Greek Messenger Goddess and Iris Murdoch after whom DSDC HQ was named
