Building capacity of psychosocial research to advance the health and wellbeing of persons with dementia in the Asia-Pacific region: PROMOTE

Chairs: Henry Brodaty and Yun-Hee Jeon

 

Established in 2013, Psychosocial Research Consortium to Advance Mental Health of Older People in the Asia Pacific Region (PROMOTE) is the first consortium of researchers from the Asia-Pacific region dedicated to psychosocial research to improve mental health of older people. The purpose of this workshop is twofold: i) to enhance capacity of and collaboration between psychosocial researchers in the region; and ii) to identify and determine key research issues that are important and feasible to member countries in promoting psychosocial care of people living with dementia. At the ADI Asia-Pacific Regional meeting in November 2016, three research projects were proposed: (a) an observational study of dyads to determine the time and pathways to diagnosis and the services received over 12 months; (b) a qualitative research to examine commonalities and uniqueness of experiences of people with dementia and their carers; and (c) a narrative review of research evidence on psychosocial research in dementia in the region. In this workshop we will discuss ways through which the next collaborative research projects can be carried out in this region. Those interested in participating in psychosocial research in Asia-Pacific region are strongly encouraged to attend.
