Below is a list of Australian dementia and aged care research studies currently recruiting for participants to take part or complete surveys.
AJDC provides these listings as a free service for Australian researchers seeking to invite people to participate in their research, and members of the public interested in participating or being involved.
StepUp for Dementia Research is delivered by the University of Sydney and is a ‘one-stop shop’ connecting individuals – with and without dementia – with researchers conducting studies into dementia prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and cure..
The ADNeT Volunteer Portal is a register for people who would like to participate in research into the causes, prevention and treatment of dementia. Volunteers don’t need to have dementia to participate. Anyone aged 50 and over can register, complete a few questions and be matched to suitable trials and research projects as they become available.
Please direct any inquiries about the studies below to the contact name listed for each research study.
Current Research Studies
Transport technology and dementia
People living with dementia and their care partners are being invited to contribute to a new two-year study which will explore how new transport technologies – such as app-based ride-sharing services and driverless buses – could help people living with dementia improve their quality of life and levels of independence.
Aged Care Data Compare project
Researchers at the University of Queensland’s Centre for Health Services Research (CHSR) are seeking aged care providers, software vendors, geriatricians, health services researchers and developers to be involved in Aged Care Data Compare, a new project launched in mid 2020.
