Research on the radio
One of our research studies
for people with dementia has been discussed on the BBC Radio 4
programme 'All In The Mind'.
The study looked at the emotional impact of a diagnosis and how
people with dementia process information about their diagnosis.
In 2015 AWP's Research and Development team collaborated with
The University of the West of England on this study and it was
recently discussed at the British Psychological Society Conference.
The BBC Radio 4 programme All In The Mind reported the findings of
Research and Development Clinical Studies
Officer, Abbie Jones who worked on this study said: "I was
surprised and delighted to be listening to one of my favourite
Radio 4 programmes and hearing about the study I had been working
"I enjoyed working with service users who have a dementia
diagnosis and feel proud to hear the result being discussed
The programme is available on BBC iPlayer and
the study discussion is towards the end (19 minutes in).
