18/191 Care planning intervention for people with dementia who do not have regular contact with an informal carer

Application dates: 29 November 2018 to 03 April 2019

The Health Technology Assessment Programme is accepting stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for this primary research topic:

For people with dementia who live alone and who do not have regular contact with an informal carer, what strategies/methods are used in the UK to support their care? Can a care planning intervention be adapted and manualised for this group and how best could its effectiveness be evaluated?

The UK NIHR and the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) are collaborating on this research priority and will consider joint funding for any collaborative research proposals submitted to this brief. Applications which include a research collaboration between UK and Australian institutions are most welcome. Please refer to the supplementary guidance for additional requirements related to NIHR/NHMRC collaborative applications. Applications from UK institutions without an Australian collaborative element are also welcome for consideration.
