DCRC

Dementia Collaborative Research Centre Assessment and Better Care (DCRC-ABC), which is an important component of CHeBA. While it has its own independent management and funding, it contributes to the greater whole and provides important opportunities for collaboration.

About the Group: 

The Dementia Collaborative Research Centre based at UNSW is one of three DCRCs funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. They conduct research to improve the diagnosis, reduce the risk of dementia, and improve the lives of those people living with dementia, their families and carers through over 160 research projects with more being added all the time. Each DCRC has links to other research centres around Australia.

The UNSW Centre’s full name is Dementia Collaborative Research Centre Assessment and Better Care (DCRC-ABC) which indicates the focus of its research projects in collaboration with 11 partners across Australia . These projects range from improving GP diagnosis and management of dementia to better design of residential care facilities, from managing behavioural symptoms of dementia to mapping and linking data sets from hospital, community and residential care to understand the pathways to care for people with dementia, from nursing recruitment and retention to understanding dementia in adults grown up with intellectual disability and from improving quality of community care to better diagnosis and care for people in rural and remote areas of Australia.

The DCRC-ABC is an important component of CHeBA. While it has its own independent management and funding, it contributes to the greater whole and provides important opportunities for collaboration. The Director of the DCRC-ABC is co-director of CHeBA.
