The economic implications for dementia are staggering but prioritization of available funds for service or research has, to date, failed to meet this challenge.

Dominic Trépel is a health economist with dedicated interests in dementia, mental health and ageing. Through working with GBHI, The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) and related studies, he aims to develop novel approaches to improve dementia care worldwide.

As the world’s ageing population is growing, it is imperative that society places a higher value on better brain health. To that effect, better evidence is needed to inform the best use of limited resources. Through applying a broad range of health economic methods, Trépel’s work has informed government policies, clinical guidelines and has raised dementia as a health priority.

Trépel serves on the International Panel of Scientific Advisors for the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland. He is a member of the International Health Economics Association (iHEA) and the Campbell and Cochrane Economics Methods Group (CCEMG). He also peer-reviews research for the Health Economics Journal, National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Medical Research Council (MRC) and Alzheimer’s Association.

Bio: Trépel was previously a senior research fellow with a leading health economic group, the University of York and the Academic Unit for Health Economics. His doctoral research on the Economics of Dementia in Ireland and Europe was supported by the prestigious Government of Ireland scholarship and the Cochrane Fellowship. He also received structured doctoral training in health economics from the Institut d'Economie et de Management de la Santé (IEMS) in the Swiss School of Public Health.
