Outcomes and measures

To establish whether research interventions have been effective, outcomes and measures are selected. This theme of work aims to develop new measures for evaluating dementia care and interventions, as well as refine existing measures to meet the needs of people living with dementia and those caring for them. Our research is funded by major funders such as The Medical Research Council (MRC), National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and provider organisations such as Barchester Healthcare.

There is growing interest in understanding the most appropriate way to capture the experiences of people with dementia – particularly those who may struggle to communicate verbally.

  • Our work in this area aims to improve understanding of how to collect outcomes data from an inclusive perspective whilst ensuring accuracy.
