Setting up a study
In order to improve care for people living with dementia, Alzheimer’s Society is committed to funding care research, as well as supporting the translation of research into practice to help close the gap between the production and utilisation of knowledge.
Alzheimer's Society is currently scoping ideas for the launch of a funding call later this year, to explore different models for enabling enhanced care provider roles in research, in order to facilitate successful implementation.
The Dementia Care Mapping (DCM™) Enhancing Person-centred care in Care Homes (EPIC) clinical trial aimed to understand whether DCM™ reduced behaviours that are often associated with agitation for people living with dementia in care homes.
