Key Interests

Dr MacAndrew is a registered nurse with experience in caring for people with dementia in long term care and her research interests focus on improving quality of life and care for people with dementia who wander.

She has trialled two behavioural interventions that aimed to reduce risky aspects of wandering and is currently testing a new assessment tool to help carers to identify risks associated with wandering and to plan care that focusses on promoting autonomy and safety.
