Through our podcasts we aim to explore a range of topics which will be of interest to Early Career Researchers, or others interested in working and studying in the field.
The first meeting of researchers with a special interest in adapting qualitative research methods for participants with dementia met at the Centre for Academic Primary Care in the University of Bristol. This meeting was organised by Jemima Dooley and colleagues from UCL and the University of Plymouth in order to increase awareness of qualitative dementia research, share ideas, provide peer support and plan future collaborations. The group will meet biannually, with the next meeting being held at UCL in March 2020, and are welcoming new members. The podcasts are available on the Dementia Research website.
Dr Jemima Dooley (University of Bristol), Dr Sarah Griffiths, (University of Plymouth) and Anna Volkmer (University College London) work in the field of language and communications, an area which can be particularly challenging for people living with dementia.
Adam Smith joined the group's inaugural meeting, and in this podcast he talks with Jemima and Sarah to understand how the meeting came about, what they hope to achieve and what comes next.
