The MRCG-HRB Joint Funding Scheme 2017-2018
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is pleased to announce its participation in the Joint Funding Scheme 2017 between the Health Research Board and the Medical Research Charities Group.
Post-diagnostic support services can help people with dementia to continue living well in the community, provide information and support; help people to manage issues as a result of getting a diagnosis; and delay admission to long-term residential care.
Post-diagnostics is a key policy priority for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland and is the focus of this research call. There is a need for more research to understand the experiences and needs of people at the point of diagnosis in terms of emotional and psychological supports to manage the distress, uncertainty, fear, anxiety and grief that can accompany a diagnosis of dementia.
For this co-funding scheme we are inviting competitive and original proposals that address the experiences and needs of people with dementia in terms of how emotional and psychological needs can be addressed.
Focus of Call
Dementia and post-diagnostics, emotional and psychological support and service needs for people with dementia following diagnosis.
