RDNS Institute study: Enabling Wellbeing by Providing Choice




This is a study currently being conducted by the Royal District Nursing Service (RDNS) Institute, and I am sharing here today to assist them to find more Australians willing to participate in the study. I don’t share too many research opportunities here, but anything to do with wellbeing and personal choice is definitely important to me.

“Dementia is a growing area of concern both in Australia and Internationally. Currently, about 298,000 people in Australia have a diagnosis of dementia. This estimate is expected to triple in the next 35 years.

The RDNS Institute is conducting a project which is looking at the balance between risk and safety when caring for people with dementia. As part of the project a tool which helps family, carers, clients and staff negotiating this risk will be created and tested.

Who can take part?

We are looking for 3 groups of people to take part:

  1. People diagnosed with dementia
  2. Carers of people diagnosed with dementia, and
  3. Older people living in the community without the assistance of services

What is involved?

Participation in the study will involve chatting with a researcher about an hour. This interview will take place at a time and location that is convenient for you.

How can I take part?
