Deborah Oliveira

I am a Registered Nurse with a PhD by the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. I currently work as Assitant Professor at the Faculty of Nursing, Universidad Andrés Bello, Chile. I also collaborate as consultant on long-term care for the Panamerican Health Organization (PAHO). I am an associate member of MICARE (Millennium Institute for Care Research), Chile, of INTERDEM (Early, Timely and Quality Psychosocial Interventions in Dementia), Europe, and of the National Centre for Healthy Ageing, Melbourne, Australia. I am a Commissioner for the Lancet Commission on Long-Term Care for Older People.

Previous experience: I have previously worked as Researcher in Brazil (UNIFESP) and in the United Kingdom (University of Nottingham), and as Consultant for both the Social Protection and Health Division of the Inter-American Development Bank (Washington D.C.) and for World Health Organization (WHO), in areas related to long-term care for older people and dementia. I have over 90 publications including  peer-reviewed papers in academic journals, policy documents, and book chapters, and I have co-edited two books. I have co-led the drafting of WHO’s “Framework for countries to achieve an integrated continuum of long-term care” (2021); have been involved in drafting WHO’s “Global status report on the public health response to dementia” (2021); and contributed as an expert adviser to WHO’s “Be healthy, be mobile: a handbook on how to implement mDementia” (2021). Within the Interamerican Development Bank, I co-authored the regional report “Aging in Latin America and the Caribbean: social protection and quality of life of older persons” (2022) and the first analysis of human resource supply and demand for long-term care for older persons in Latin America and the Caribbean (2022). I am / have been Associate Editor for the journals: Dementia, Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, and Dementia & Neuropsychologia.
