Invitation to a Community Forum

Researchers from Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre will conduct a forum about dementia friendly communities. Any adult from the community with an interest in dementia can attend, individuals, business owners or community organisations. Those who are currently living with dementia or are carers of people with dementia are encouraged to attend. A light lunch will be provided and there is no cost to attend.

During the forum:
  • You will be invited to complete an anonymous dementia knowledge survey
  • We will provide a short presentation about our research
  • You will be given an opportunity to share your knowledge and views about your community becoming dementia friendly in a small group discussion
This event is being conducted as part of a research project, and has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee (TAS). The research is supported by the Tasmanian Community Fund. When you attend (or prior if requested) you will be given an information sheet and you will be asked to give consent to participate in this research. Data collected from the forum will inform further research and the findings will be provided back to your community. You will not be identifiable in publications or presentations resulting from the data collected at the forums.  Your responses to the Dementia Knowledge survey are completely anonymous.
