Join the Contact, Help, Advice and Information Network (CHAIN) Dementia Sub-group

Contact, Help, Advice and Information Network (CHAIN)  is an online mutual support network for people working in health and social care. It gives people a simple and informal way of contacting each other to exchange ideas and share knowledge.

The aim of the CHAIN dementia sub-group, of which Alzheimer's Society is the stake-holder, is to enable those with an interest in dementia care and research to connect and share knowledge and expertise.

Request for information: Models that support care providers being actively involved in research

In order to improve care for people living with dementia, Alzheimer’s Society is committed to funding care research, as well as supporting the translation of research into practice to help close the gap between the production and utilisation of knowledge.

Alzheimer's Society is currently scoping ideas for the launch of a funding call later this year, to explore different models for enabling enhanced care provider roles in research, in order to facilitate successful implementation.
