Description
The DCRC is pleased to announce a grant round to fund World Class Research Projects including trials and studies to produce evidence, evaluate interventions, promote practice change or inform policy.Project grants will be funded from the following areas:1. Reduce or delay risk of cognitive decline or dementia. Examples include detailed examinations of risk factors or intervention type, or detailed examinations of populations; trials that produce evidence for recommendations for physical activity; interventions on diet, or vascular risk reduction and management; multidomain approaches to risk reduction; comparison of interventions, or interventions to reduce barriers to or increase uptake of dementia risk reduction strategies.2. Develop evidence and promote uptake measures that will help people live better with dementia, including but not limited to practice change initiatives, addressing stigma, promotion of autonomy and reablement.3. Improve quality of care and quality of life for people living with dementia and carers in community, residential care or acute care. Examples of possible foci include nutrition, behaviours & psychological symptoms associated with dementia (BPSD), scope of practice and care planning, pain management, engagement in satisfying relationships and activities, carer education and support, technology use, care team communications, novel approaches to the transitions between home and various level of care.The research must be conducted in Australia.
