background
Background
  • Needs are inadequately addressed all along illness trajectory.

  • Large gaps in the evidence base : what works for whom?.
  • There are methodological problems in carrying out research in dementia.
  • Dementia research in community settings is under-developed

    • Management of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD);
    • Management of incontinence at home; and
    • End of life care.
  • Evaluate the impact of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, & develop educational interventions to support the application of the Act.
