Words of Strength
Implementation, meeting deadlines, strategic thinking
The best approach to address this challenge is through developing multidisciplinary interventions.
Hanan’s plans are to establish a national and regional network for mental health with three aims:
- increase awareness through advocacy,
- improve the quality of patient care; and
- improve understanding of mental health through epidemiological and intervention research.
Hanan hopes to obtain unique training in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and dementia and to grow a unique network with Atlantic Fellows, which she believes is important for any early/mid-career researcher like herself in terms of academic growth.
The burden of dementia in Jordan, as in most other countries, is on a steady increase and will continue to pose major challenges to healthcare providers in terms of clinical management and the associated economic implications.
