Participate in an online interview to help improve outcomes for people with dementia who go missing.
People with dementia are at greater risk of getting lost and experiencing devastating outcomes as a result. Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is leading research to help address this. We are looking for people with early stage dementia or memory problems to participate in an online interview with a member of the research team. The aim is to hear what people with dementia think should be done to improve the safety of people with dementia who go missing.
To be eligible you need to have early stage dementia or problems with your memory, be able to understand what your participation will involve, and be able to join the interview via Zoom using a device with a camera and microphone.
Participation involves attending two online meetings:
ZOOM MEETING 1:
This meeting will be scheduled for a time that suits you and will take approximately 10-minutes. During the meeting we will answer your questions about the project, check your understanding of what is expected of you if you do participate, and record your verbal consent to participate.
ZOOM MEETING 2:
This meeting will be scheduled for a time that suits you and will take approximately 30-minutes. During this meeting we will ask for your views about strategies that have been recommended by others that aim to improve the safety of people with dementia.
Your care partner is welcome to attend these meetings, however, this is not essential.
To thank you for your contribution we are offering you a $50 Woolworths voucher. If your care partner also attends, we are unable to give a second voucher.
