Join Dementia Research is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care and delivered in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Alzheimer Scotland, Alzheimer’s Research UK and the Alzheimer’s Society. It is a national service which allows members of the public to register their interest in taking part in dementia research studies. The service is not a research study itself, but matches people aged 18 and over, with or without dementia with researchers who are seeking participants for their studies.All studies using Join Dementia Research will have been approved by a Research Ethics Committee. This means that they have been checked to make sure they protect the rights, safety and wellbeing of people involved in research.
Researchers from Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT), in colloboration with Lincolnshire Community Health Service (LCHS) and United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT) are planning a new challenge called Join Dementia Research #LincsJDR300 with an ambitious target of getting 300 people signed up to JDR across Lincolnshire, leading up to and during Dementia Action Week (DAW) which is 17-23 May 2021.
