RAT/CATCH PhD students present at ScHARR Post Graduate Research (PGR) Conference

Becky Field (Researcher, PhD Student and Occupational Therapist) and Jake Andrews (PhD Student) presented their research at the annual School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) post graduate research conference on May 26th 2016.  Becky’s talk was called ‘Psychosocial interventions for people living with dementia: identifying influences on take up’, based on initial work done in the first year of her PhD. Jake presented ‘Technology for mental health in later life: is it a practical solution?’

It was really interesting to hear about the range of post graduate research being  undertaken in ScHARR, helpful to practice presenting and to get feedback on our projects.

Becky’s PhD research is supported by the Valuing Active Life in Dementia research programme,  which is funded by the NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) grant number: RP-PG 0610-10108
