What Does Research Participation Typically Involve?

As a participant in a research study we may ask you to spend up to two consecutive days at the Dementia Research Centre (Queen Square), but it is completely up to you how much time you would like to contribute to your visit. During that time, you might participate in various research activities and may see several different researchers on a prearranged schedule, with plenty of time for breaks. The Dementia Research Centre would pay for, or book your travel (and travel for the person accompanying you) and reimburse you for the cost of meals and refreshments during the visit. If you are attending the Dementia Research Centre for two consecutive days we can also make arrangements for you and the person accompanying you to stay in a nearby hotel if this would be more convenient for you; the costs of the hotel stay would be met by the Dementia Research Centre. Unlike clinic appointments there is flexibility about the timing of research visits, and if we cannot finish a particular assessment on the day we may ask if you would be happy to arrange a later date to visit you at home to complete this.
