The King’s Fund Information and Library Service produces a growing repertoire of reading lists on many topics of interest to readers of Dementia: the Latest Evidence. Each contains a selected list of references gathered and maintained by The King’s Fund Library.
Dementia research and care is a complex multi-disciplinary area, so it will be of little surprise that many of these reading lists are of relevance. Each reader will have his / her own priorities, but a broad grouping of these lists by level of general interest has been attempted (see below).
