Exploring the need for a new UK occupational intervention for people with dementia – a focus group study


Researchers Becky Field and Laura Di Bona have just had a paper published, as co-authors and part of their work on the ‘Valuing Active Life in Dementia’ (VALID) research study. The paper is called ‘Exploring the need for a new UK occupational intervention for people with dementia and family carers: Community Occupational Therapy in Dementia (COTiD): a focus group study’. It has been published in the journal ‘Aging & Mental Health’. 


The paper reports on focus groups held with people with dementia and family carers. These groups were part of development work to inform a community occupational therapy intervention (COTiD-UK) now being delivered as part of the VALID randomised control trial. The trial is testing the effectiveness of this occupational therapy intervention. This trial is now running in Sheffield, London and Humber
