About the Project
The main aims of this studentship are to:
Investigate systematically, using both qualitative and quantitative methods, the impact of visual images on the speech of people living with dementia
Develop a prototype assessment which can be used to evaluate different visual methods and/or resources for use in dementia practice and research.
We are looking for applicants with a good first degree or Masters degree in social or health sciences, knowledge of qualitative and/or mixed research methods, and some experience of working - in a paid or voluntary capacity - with adult service users in a health or social care context.
