Enabling People With Dementia

Dementia Enquirers Project: Enabling people living with dementia to lead research

Dementia Enquirers Project: Enabling people living with dementia to lead research

Delivered online using Livestorm


12:00 - 13:00 Wednesday, 28 July 2021

The gap between research carried out and real life experiences is often exacerbated by a lack of input from people with lived experience into the design and delivery of research.

Drawing on the Dementia Enquirers Project, this webinar with Philly Hare and George Rook, explores how people living with dementia can go beyond ‘patient and public involvement’ and be ‘in the driving seat’ of research. We will discuss the benefits of this approach, the barriers people encounter (including ethics processes and complex academic language), and how people can be supported without being taken over.
