We will only find treatments for dementia through research and clinical trials. Research needs volunteers living with dementia and memory problems, and those who are not. At Great Minds we are focusing on volunteers from other health studies because they have a wealth of data that researchers can use in developing early treatments. Our volunteers are incredibly valuable because there are currently so few with this wealth of health data that are part of dementia research.

About Great Minds Other

Discussion groups with research volunteers revealed that participants and public were positive about being contacted about new research opportunities. We also learned some important things for us to consider, and this has helped shape how this contact should be made. We have followed this advice in the creation of the Great Minds.
