Volunteer Criteria

Participants must have experience of the hospital discharge process as a patient or as a carer for an adult with a dementia diagnosis.

What will I be asked to do?

You will be asked to take part in a group discussion about what you identify as the key areas of support required to maintain well-being for patients with a dementia diagnosis and their carers, during the discharge from hospital process.

You will be invited to contribute your own experiences (positive or negative) of hospital discharge as a carer or patient, if you are happy and comfortable doing so, to help guide the researcher in identifying areas requiring improvement in the discharge process and to ensure that patients with a dementia diagnosis and their carers, receive the support needed during hospital discharge. 

The focus group discussion will last approximately 2 hours.      

When and where?

The focus group will take place on Wednesday 23rd January 2019, 10-12 at the Campus for Ageing and Vitality in Newcastle.

    When you say: "Participants must have experience of the hospital discharge process as a patient or as a carer for an adult with a dementia diagnosis."

    What is the time scale you are looking for?

    Is it within the last 12 months - 3 years - 5 years - 10 years?

    I ask this because procedures are always changing & the old stuff may not be relevant.
