Project Aim(s): To understand how triplet repeat expansions are controlled in cells and how this information might be useful clinically.
This research project focuses on how person-centred, non-pharmacological approaches to care are valued in dementia and a contingent valuation approach will be used to examine preferences and values from citizens with respect to alternative types of care. The research also involves creating a taxonomy of psychosocial supports in dementia care in Ireland, including the evaluation of a number of psychosocial interventions including Alzheimer Cafés.
Our research aims to explore media supports used by Irish families who care for or have recently cared for a loved one with dementia. Media supports may include podcasts, radio shows, television programmes or adverts, websites, apps, physical information sheets, and other forms of information provision. We want to find out if Irish families caring for a loved one with dementia use resources of this type, if they are suitable, and how they are used in dementia care.
