Stream 4: Implementation and Process Evaluations

Work on Stream 4 will commence in Year 4 of the study.

However, an implementation group which has already been set up and will meet throughout the study; the purpose of these meetings is to oversee process evaluations of our NIDUS-family and NIDUS-professional programmes.

The implementation group includes academics, health professionals, home care managers and research network volunteers. They will undertake process evaluations of our NIDUS programmes to inform development of implementation guides. This will include qualitative interviews with people with dementia, family carers, home carers and home care managers.

Researchers at Anglia Ruskin will be leading the evaluation of NIDUS-family.
