In 2013 the Dementia HIT carried out a survey to find out what peoples attitudes towards dementia were. They now want to repeat this survey, to see if anything has changed over the last five years. The survey is open to anyone who is aged over 18. You don’t have to live or work in Bristol and South Gloucestershire to complete the survey. It takes between 10 and 15 minutes to complete, and the survey is open to the end of March, 2019. All responses to the survey are anonymous.
The survey can be completed on either a laptop or a mobile device. To complete the survey, just click on this link https://uwe.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/online-survey-of-dementia-attitudes-2018-and-2019.
In the Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Service we are keen to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be involved in research.
Research studies can take a number of forms and may investigate different aspects of dementia from clinical trials of new medicines to finding out which care treatments work best. Research can be beneficial in a number of ways, including the potential to improve one's own condition, wellbeing or quality of life, the ability to access treatments which may not be widely available and the possibility of helping other people with dementia in the future.
Examples of being involved in research can include talking to researchers about a particular subject, completing a questionnaire or attending a health centre for tests. Even if you sign-up to be involved in research, you are under no obligation to be part of any specific study, and you are always given full information about how you will be involved and what will happen - you can always change your mind at any time.
The Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Service will have a number of studies which are looking for volunteers. If you would like to find out more about the current opportunities, or to find out more about local research in your area, please get in touch with Shaun Popel, our Assistant Research Practitioner on 0117 904 5150 who will be happy to talk to you.
