Dementia, Cognition and Care - Ideas Generator

As part of the White Rose University Consortium, Dementia, Cognition & Care is a collaboration to support the development of a centre for dementia care research' focusing on non-pharmacological interventions.

It is common practise to involve people with dementia in research but rarely are people with the condition asked for their opinions on research priorities. For example 'what research do you think should be done, what questions do you think need answering and what topics do you think are most important?'

People with dementia are experts of their condition thus as researchers, clinicians and those who would like to learn more about the topic, we should be listening and learning from the experts. 

We are holding a workshop at the University of York on Friday 18th July 2014 and we would like your input. If you feel unable to contribute but are aware of someone else who may benefit please forward this email to them.
 Fir further information please click here.

What are the questions that people with dementia and those supporting them have for research? We want to hear ideas and views so that our research can make a difference.

This event will bring together those living with the condition, practitioners from health and social care and researchers 
Please contact Sarah Smith (details below) if you are interested in participating and/or facilitating on the day by Thursday 10th July 2014 so that catering numbers can be verified and I can forward further details onto you.
