Making research evidence accessible

Leads

We are reviewing and synthesising the findings of studies that evaluate the effectiveness of interventions for people living with dementia and their carers, with a particular focus on evidence from low- and middle-income countries.

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are assessing current evidence on what works in dementia care in low and middle-income countries. We are assessing the degree to which research evidence from high-income countries can be transferred to low and middle-income countries, and exploring opportunities to adapt existing evidence from other countries using local parameters. Our assessment is based on the availability and relevance of the interventions evaluated in high-income settings to low- and middle-income settings.

A publicly available, international (multi-language) database will be developed to report our findings.

We will also develop a decision support platform which combines the findings of published scientific studies with the values and preferences of end users in low and middle-income countries.
