In podcast #2 from dementiaresearcher.nihr.ac.uk we have a great panel line up, talking about ‘Working with people with dementia and their carers’.
The people behind the disease are at the centre of what we do as dementia researchers. Biomedical research often involves directly working with patients and carers. This offers a fantastic opportunity and some unique challenges. In this recording Amy Monaghan talks to Timothy Rittman from University of Cambridge and Addenbrookes Hospital, Kellie Morrissey from the Open Lab at Newcastle University and Yvette Vermee from the Department of Psychiatry at University College London.
We hear how these three individuals work with people with dementia, how this benefits their work, how to prepare, and how to approach working with individuals challenged by their symptoms.
