Webinar #3 ‘The importance of measuring fidelity of delivery of, and engagement with, complex dementia interventions’ Monday 6th April at 1.30 PM

Psychological and social interventions which aim to help people with dementia to live independently are often developed and evaluated. It is not always clear whether these interventions are delivered as planned by providers (called ‘fidelity of delivery’), or engaged with by participants. To understand if the planned intervention is responsible for intervention outcomes, we need to understand how it is delivered and engaged with.

In this Webinar, Dr Holly Walton [2] discusses why fidelity of delivery and engagement are important when evaluating psychosocial interventions for dementia. She also gives examples of how to measure fidelity of delivery and engagement, using examples from my PhD research and shares what she found in her PhD research (from two dementia interventions).
