Volunteers required to help shape European research project

24 May 2016

Would you like to help shape research aiming to find the best ways of identifying and supporting older people with hearing, vision and memory problems?

Are you:

  • Living with memory problems and/or hearing or vision problems?
  • Caring for someone who is living with dementia and/or hearing or vision problems? 

If yes, we are keen to hear from you to help us shape the SENSE-Cog research project.

SENSE-Cog is a five year European project, led by the University of Manchester. The project will investigate the impact of memory problems and hearing and vision problems. The SENSE-Cog project will also develop new tools that could improve quality of life for those affected by memory problems and hearing or vision problems.

What does this mean for you?

  • Be part of a research user group in Manchester to help us shape the SENSE-Cog project.
  • Act as a critical friend on our research. Advise and give feedback about our research via post, email or in person.
  • Attend quarterly meetings (meetings will last 2 hours, with refreshments provided).
  • Attend necessary training to support you in this role.
  • You will be paid for your time and travel expenses.

If you would like to find out more, please visit SENSE-Cog.

If you would like to take part please contact the Patient and Public Voice co-ordinator Kerin Bayliss on 0161 276 3368 or email Kerin.Bayliss@cmft.nhs.uk or Jahanara.Miah@manchester.ac.uk with your name and contact details by Friday 17th June 2016
