Thank you to our consumer representatives

The DCRC values highly the input of consumers - people who are directly affected by dementia.

Persons with dementia and their carers offer DCRC research projects unique and invaluable insight, advice and opinion on a range of issues including:

  • the types of research that should be prioritised by the DCRC
  • reviewing new project proposals
  • ideas on how to translate research into sustainable practice change
  • how to build awareness of dementia in the community
  • providing advocacy and contacts for lobbying agencies and govenment

The DCRC supported the Consumer Dementia Research Network, and also welcome consumers to attend the Annual National Dementia Forum.
