Alzheimer’s WA works in collaboration with local, national and international researchers and Universities. We partner with research organisations to further our knowledge and develop evidence for best practice, treatment and service outcomes in relation to the care and support of people living with dementia.
Alzheimer’s WA provides information to its members and dementia advocates network on the latest research taking place and raises awareness of the opportunity to participate in research studies being undertaken.
Our dementia expertise can add a valuable contribution to research projects and our staff may provide reference group membership or associate investigator/chief investigator roles to strengthen the collaboration in projects.
At Alzheimer’s WA we have a key interest in knowledge translation and ensuring new evidence is informing our client services, our education and workforce development programs and the capacity building consultancy services we provide.
If you would like to discuss a research partnership with Alzheimer’s WA, please contact: Jason Burton – Head of Dementia Practice and Innovation.
Recent research partners include:
ECU Sleep Study
Alzheimer’s WA and ECU have partnered on a research study to look at sleep patterns in carers of someone living with dementia. We would love to hear your experience on if your caring role impacts on your sleep.
