Population health and Social science

Members of the network engaged in social, economic and connected health research seek to identify, evaluate and develop evidence based social and community interventions which are response to the needs of individuals with dementia and other neurodegenerative conditions. In addition, they focus attention on policy-driven research with the objective of assembling an evidence base for immediate/long-term policy development.

Areas of focus include:

  • The experiences of people with dementia and ND, their families and carers
  • Quality of life and care for people with dementia and ND
  • Timely recognition and intervention
  • Support & information needs of people with dementia and ND, their families & carers
  • Care planning, management and environment
  • The interaction of the policy, social and economic context on dementia and ND care
