We collaborate closely with research institutions and researchers across the South East, to find better ways of treating and supporting people with dementia. This includes the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), which is only the second NIHR BRC dedicated to mental health and dementia.
A new Brain Health Centre is now being developed as part of the NIHR Oxford Health BRC, and one of its aims is to improve service for and provide research opportunities for people with concerns about their memory.
So we’re currently looking for people with experience of memory problems (and their carers) to take part in feedback and involvement sessions. Find out more on the NIHR Oxford Health BRC pages on patient and public involvement.
You can also find out more on the Oxford Health research pages, and here are some of the things we are doing:
- ‘Preventing dementia: how hard can it be?’ Article by NIHR Oxford Health BRC researcher Dr Simon Lovestone
- Oxford Mail article on Oxford Health BRC research
- Dementia care improved by social interaction: research by Dr Jane Fossey, consultant clinical psychologist responsible for psychological services within Oxford Health.
