Clinicians needed for interview study into dementia diagnosis and new diagnostic technology
The Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences is seeking clinicians with current or previous experience of dementia diagnosis and care pathways, who are willing to share their experiences and thoughts on new diagnostic technology.
We’re interested in
- Clinician experiences and opinions of how dementia diagnosis comes about and what care pathways look like.
- What clinicians feel would be helpful when new diagnostic technology is being introduced into dementia diagnosis.
Participants will be compensated for their time.
